Extended Service Contract

If you are above the 36K miles, would this be covered under the Platinum Extended Service Contract?

No. I believe the following statement is very specific:

[This repair is covered under the Toyota Comprehensive Warranty. This warranty is in effect for 36 months or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the vehicle’s in-service date.]
