My local Toyota dealer gave an estimate of $591 + tax for 90,000 miles service which will include oil changes, flush oil and tire rotation. I already got Timing belt done before. So is this estimate missing anything? Repair Pal says that spark plug replacement is standard but the Dealer said that is not included in this.

Why doesn't my remote control working after replacing car battery? Also, my interior lights don't come on and after
turning the ignition off and closing the door, the head light
flashes several time by itself and I think this is draining my battery power. Please help.

check engine vehicle skid control dash light
came on--now have 31,000 miles

removed the screws, what do I need to do with the screwdriver

I looked at every fuse under the steering wheel and next to the battery, and I swapped every relay with another one but I'm still not getting electricity to the radio, fan, or clock, and the power windows aren't working. I think I shorted something when I was installing a new alternator. Any ideas on something else I should check? I don't have a wiring diagram so I'm not sure where else to look.

whenever I start my car it won't stay started. This problem was intermittent in the past but now it happens all the time.

In winter weather, should track be on or off

07 sienna 3.0l it has gotten to where it turns over a long time before it starts cold, once it's warmed up seems to be ok.replaced spark plugs yesterday no change. no codes in computer, runs great. has 85000 miles on it.think maybe fuel pump?but only does it when motor is cold. thanks for any help.

My van does not blow hot air from the front vents. it does sometimes from the rear, but its not too hot either. I replaced the climate control already, but Is this because of the heating core? anyone else had this problem?

The electric window will not close most of the time without several attempts, sometimes turning a corner or turning the engine off and on gets the window to close little by little. Is this a switch problem or a motor problem? There is no problem lowering the window. How do I access the switch mechanism, does the assembly just pry out?

My van smells like fumes inside, does it need to have the cabin air filter replaced? How? If not what else could it be?
