    I've noticed EGR clean mentioned a few times recently so I searched youtube and found a Prius EGR repair/replace DIY 2010 - 2015 non plugin, but you'll get the jist of it and a hint about when to tackle it.
    Of course if you're handy and want to do it sooner, it's a good preventative measure in any car with a EVAP system, in my opinion.

    Thank you for all the replies.
    I am very familiar with "Stealerships" and usually only go to them until the included free maintenance, if any, is done then find someone local or do myself. I let toyota do the oil change as it is usually $59.95 and get the multipoint inspection report and take that info but never let them change a thing.

    My mileage was low compared to yours, 45K. The fans were spotless, a complete waste of 20 minutes. :whistle:

    Hey
    Could anyone guide me to the correct oil change intervals on a pip. I use liquimoly 0w20 and my 50% miles are driven on battery.

    That's a loaded question.
    Suppose you changed your liquimoly 0w20 every 5k miles, but didn't replace the filter element, or the car is driven under harsh conditions or the oil went low due to unforeseen circumstances.
    Just to name a few variables one should take into account when deciding their own personal oil change interval.
