In this video, Andy discusses scheduled maintenance for the 2011-2019 Toyota Camry up to 120,000 miles.

Here we have a Toyota Camry. We're gonna go over the regular scheduled services for this car. All these services are recommended by Toyota, and you can go over these in your owner's manual.

At 5,000 miles, what you wanna do is rotate the tires. So, you're gonna take the right front tire, rotate it to the left rear, take the left rear, rotate it to the right front, and the same on the opposite side. Rotating your tires is important to prolong the life of your tires. At the first 5,000 miles, it's recommended that you change the oil, and then thereafter, every 10,000 miles. But if you're a rideshare driver or your vehicle idles a lot, maybe you use your car for work, it's probably a good idea to replace it every 5,000 miles. So, keep those in mind. Every 5,000 miles or every 6 months, rotate your tires and change your oil.

Now, once you hit 15,000 miles, you're gonna wanna check your cabin filter and your air filter. If you drive in a lot of dusty conditions, it's a good idea to replace them. If not, your regular, ordinary driving conditions, every 30,000 miles.

At 60,000 miles, you're gonna change the transmission fluid if you drive the vehicle under special operating conditions, which means if you tow with the vehicle, if you have a roof rack and you put stuff on the top of the vehicle, or you put a lot of weight in the vehicle such as passengers. If you're not sure whether you drive under special operating conditions, it's always a good idea to check the transmission fluid, if it's kinda dirty, it might be a good idea to change it.

At 100,000 miles, you're gonna wanna change the coolant. The coolant, if it gets old and starts corroding, you're gonna cause the radiator to clog up. It can damage water pumps, thermostats, and that could cause the engine to overheat, damage the engine. Or you could have the heater core start clogging up, and then you don't have heat in the vehicle. So, make sure you change your coolant.

At 120,000 miles, you're gonna wanna change your spark plugs. Now, if you don't change the spark plugs, you can cause the gaps to get too wide on the plugs. It can cause damage to the coils, could also cause a check engine light. So, make sure you change your spark plugs.
So, all those services, you're gonna wanna do at each interval. So, every 30,000 miles, do that same one, every 60,000, at 120,000, you'll do the same. And then, replacing the spark plugs, you're gonna do that again at 240,000. During these services, it's also a good idea to check out these following items: check and fill all your fluids, check and fill your tire pressure, including your spare tire, check all your light bulbs, check your wiper blades, check your suspension and brakes for looseness and wear, check your battery, make sure it's working properly, and don't ignore warning lights on the dash.
