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

Bring your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Land Cruiser. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2002 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Land Cruiser) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Toyota Land Cruiser could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2002 Land Cruiser. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Toyota Land Cruiser 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Toyota Land Cruiser steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Toyota Land Cruiser's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Toyota Land Cruiser services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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.
