A few questions as I am performing maintenance on my friend's 2007 auto trans FJ with 130k miles. It is a road car. However, it is located at 8000+ feet in Colorado with a long uphill gravel driveway. Obviously, it sees it fair share of snow.

1) with the hood up, the valve chatter a bit. Is this normal or do they require adjustment?

2) should antifreeze be replaced with Toyota OEM?

3) is there one part number for all the drain/fill plug washers /gaskets? If not, does someone have, for example, the AA part numbers?

4) below is a list of parts I compiled from various sources including this forum. Would you all have a look at it for me?

Any advice on what to purchase is welcomed.

-AA part #5070835

I agree with the things that you listed. I replaced the radiator hoses at ~ 75k miles. That's mainly a throwback to when I lived in Phoenix, every other year the hoses and belts would get changed.

I installed magnetic drain plugs when I changed the gear oil.

It wouldn't hurt to clean the throttle body too... it's so easy and cheap to do I do that on a yearly basis.... and the MAF sensor.

Your friend is lucky to have you as a resource.

Where can I purchase a magnetic drain plug?

Good advice. I will change the hoses too. I will update the parts list with AA part numbers and repost.

How does one clean the throttle body and MAF? On my D90 I clean the throttle body with Gumout. The MAF?

I've been running Amsoil ATF for 9 yrs in my 07 FJ without any issues.

Add a PCV valve to your list -
NAPA ECHLIN# 2-9950 - $4
