At Dolan Toyota, we want to help you keep your vehicle performing at the highest level for as long as you drive it, and the best way to do so is through routine servicing. When your vehicle is performing like it always does, it can be difficult to tell when it needs to be serviced. That's why we're here to provide you with some recommended Toyota servicing and maintenance that you can have performed throughout the year. Many of our service tips can be performed at home or you can have our expert technicians take care of them for you so you can get back on the roads around Reno with your vehicle in peak condition again without skipping a beat.

Oil Changes

Getting your oil changed is one of the least expensive and easiest ways that you can keep your engine performing at the highest level. Your motor oil Is the lifeblood of your vehicle because it protects and keeps your engine performing properly. It not only collects and filters out dirt and debris from the road before it can get into your engine, it also lubricates and cools the many moving parts within your engine to keep it working properly and efficiently. When the motor oil gets dirty after traveling too many miles it can begin to damage your engine. We encourage you to check your owner's manual and maintenance schedule for the suggested mileage intervals for an oil change, or you can play it safe and bring it in for an oil change after 5,000 miles traveled.

Tire Rotation

Your tires are what the performance of your vehicle rests on, literally. That's why it's important to ensure that your tires are in the proper condition and allowing you to accelerate, stop and steer correctly. The front tires of your vehicle will wear out faster than the rear tires because they're the ones that steer and move with the steering wheel, while the rear tires travel in a straight line. When you notice that your front tires are wearing down, it's important that you bring your vehicle in for a tire rotation, allowing you to maximize performance and extend the lifespan of your tires.

Multi-Point Inspection

It's important to stay ahead of any minor issues before they become larger problems. That’s why we suggest bringing your vehicle in for a multi-point inspection every six months or 5,000 miles traveled. This allows our technicians to look over all the parts and components in your vehicle while using the latest diagnostic tools to catch and address any minor issues that need attention on your vehicle, allowing you to drive with confidence knowing that your vehicle is properly protected and performing correctly.

Brake Repairs

You always want to be able to stop when you need to, which is why it's so important to stay on top of brake maintenance and repairs at the first sign that something's wrong. If you hear a squeaking or squealing noise coming from your brakes when you apply the brake pedal, it means that your brake pads are worn out. After the brake pads wear out, it can affect other parts of your braking system, including the rotors, drums and calipers. That’s why we encourage you to bring your vehicle in for a brake pad replacement when you first hear that something is off or your brakes are less responsive than they once were.
