Hi Folks,
My Camry has been a pet for the dealer for the last 90K miles and the deale made a good chunk of money on the maintenance. As my car is old already, I thought I'd giver her a break from the dealer. Will it be alright if I have a local mechanic to work on the car for a 90K service (timing belt, transmission etc.,). If so, what do I tell him to do? Is there a list of common 90K maintenance task list? Your input is highly appreciated.
Thanks,

here's the recomended schedule, do all of this and your engine should be happy

250 miles or weekly

- engine oil check
- coolant level check
- windshield washer level check
- brake and clutch fluid level check
- check tires and pressure

3000 miles or 3 months

- power steering level check (i'd do this every week, you're there anyways)
- check tranny oil level (again i do this every week)
- change engine oil and filter

6000 miles or 6 months

- inspect/replace wiper blades
- check clutch play
- check/service battery (not much to do there, maybe clean the terminals)
- check/adjust serpentine belt
- inspect hoses

- rotate tires

15000 miles or 12 months

- check/adjust brakes
- replace air filter

- change differential fluid
- check and tighten critical chassis and body fasteners
- inspect and replace if necesary the spark plug wires distributor cap and rotor

60000 miles or 48 months
