    2010 Toyota Prius. Purchased in 2017 with 121k miles

    I've had the oil and filter changed regularly. Had the EGR cleaned. Have changed the cabin and engine filters.

    Can you tell me everything I can do to extend the life of my car? It's running well. No issues and I want to keep it that way

    Thank you, in advance

    You've done both coolant circuits?

    Transaxle fluid?

    Brakes?

    The brakes have been replaced. I don't believe the brake fluid has been.

    Do you have any further info? What's an OCC and how do I do these things?

    Thank you

    OCC - oil catch can. It collects oil before it blows into the EGR, and throttle body. It helps with reducing the amount of oil build up in the EGR and manifold. Most have it installed when doing the EGR cleaning.

    I bought an Aisin water pump. They're OEM water pumps with the Toyota symbol grinded off. Got it open box on Amazon for $160. Thanks
