What to Know About 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Toyota Land Cruiser, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Land Cruiser has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Land Cruiser, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Toyota themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Land Cruiser's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Toyota Land Cruiser Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Land Cruiser's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Land Cruiser may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Toyota Land Cruiser battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Toyota Land Cruiser won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser engine. See Toyota's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Land Cruiser in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Toyota Land Cruiser steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Toyota Land Cruiser steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Toyota Land Cruiser's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Toyota Land Cruiser maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Toyota Land Cruiser engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Toyota Land Cruiser radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1996 Toyota Land Cruiser maintenance.
