I think it will be helpful to collect information/tips/photos on how to do the various inspections mentioned in the Scheduled Maintenance Guide, especially for the uninitiated such as myself. Here is a list of the inspection items: Inspect engine air filter Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis and body (what torques?) __ Automatic transmission fluid __ Ball joints and dust covers __ Brake lines and hoses __ Brake linings/drums and brake pads/discs http://priuschat.com/forums/gen-ii-...iy-visual-inspection-dummies.html#post1112688 __ Drive belts __ Drive shaft boots __ Engine valve clearance __ Engine/Inverter coolant __ Exhaust pipes and mountings __ Front differential oil __ Fuel lines and connections, fuel tank band and fuel tank vapor vent system hoses __ Fuel tank cap gasket __ Radiator, condenser and/or intercooler __ Steering gear box __ Steering linkage and boots The subject came up in a recent thread and below are some quotes. Please reply with your comments/tips/instructions/photos/drawings ... etc. Thanks!
