#27 of 29 2001 camry service
Nov 07, 2007 (6:50 am)
I plan on keeping my 2001 (109,000 miles, bought used at 13k) until the wheels fall off so I have been pretty good with the service.
Coolant drain and flush costs $39.00 in Orlando cheap enough that I don't have to do it. (I do it every 30k I had a corolla that had a rusted radiator and don't want a repeat of that)
Transmission drain (not flush never do a flush) $59.00 so far every 35k
I switched to mobil 1 synthetic at around 60k. I get the extended run mobil 1 oil filter (up to 7,500 miles) so pay a little more then normal. Walmart price around $45.00. But I run it till about 7k.
I change out my air filter 2 times a year. They say they last 20k but they are cheap enough to change twice a year. $13.00
Changed my front rotors at around 50k because they cost like 22 bucks each instead of having them turned, I figured why turn them?) I also put in ceramic brake pads. (total cost was about $100.00 I did it myself)
At 105,000 Had timing belt, drive belt seals and water pump changed out for $700.00 by dealer. Just maintence didn't have a problem. Wasn't sure I should have had the water pump replaced, or seals but did them.
At 105,000 I replaced the spark plugs myself put in non-oem platium plugs. I think it cost me like $12 bucks. No problem but figured at 100k give the car a treat.
At 110,000 I plan on having the brake fluid flushed and filled for the first time. I think it runs about $59.00
At around 110,000 thinking about having power steering fluid replaced as well but not sure.

How easy or difficult is it to replace the brake pads and rotors on a 2007 camry ?
I feel the dealer is asking too much for the same. Can I do it myself ? and what special equipment will I require ?

How many miles? Do you really need the rotors done?
How much are they asking?
