    sticky is needed! do you have any more information? How often to adjust valves or change belts or chains? What type of brake fluid is suggested? You should get part numbers too if you can.

    The parts have not been released yet, valve adjustment will not be needed neither will chain adjustment, checked maybe if it is driven hard for valves, and DOT 3 brake fluid will be the requirement. Hope this helps.

    Awesome post, this will come in handy. Good schedule to go by if your drive like a normal person but this car was made to be driven hard, so I bet we'll have to do servicing sooner than scheduled by the manufacture.

    Will there be a dipstick for the manual trans? That's preposterous that you need some special tool to check / change trans fluid on the autobox.

    There is no timing belt on this vehicle, and its not so preposterous that you need special tools to adjust fluid level in the auto trans, here is why. normal automatic transmissions that not required to use "Toyota World Standard" transmission fluid would normally use such things as dipsticks and vents right? well the World Standard fluid, due to its demands is a synthetic fluid which has incredible capacities for both extreme heat and cold ranges, due to the design of this fluid it is hygroscopic ( retains and attracts moisture, just like brake fluid ) and must be contained in a sealed transmission, also note. ( it must be serviced at an ideal temperature which should be monitored by a tech with a scan tool. This transmission fluid, if it were to contain a dipstick, would be inappropriately replaced prematurely likely due to its color, unlike other ATF's discoloration of W/S fluid does NOT mean that it requires service! That being said.... transmissions that require this special fluid are therefor non vented sealed systems to prevent premature fluid breakdown due to moisture, and the transmissions that due require these fluids are super susceptible to incorrect fluid amounts, as much or little as one half quart can be the difference of a perfect shift or a delayed or harsh one.

    (sorry for grammatical errors, wrote quickly.)

    @MDT - I've never heard of transmission fluid being hygroscopic (even synthetic), but if that's the case, it makes sense that the case is sealed and no vent tubes, just like brake system (well, sort of, since brake system is pressurized, slightly different, but just referring to the hygroscopic portion). Is Toyota/Aisin the only one with this design and fluid?

    Will the manual trans have a "traditional" dipstick and design?

    I give kudos to Toyota actually making factory recommendations on changing trans and brake fluid. Most manufacturers "forget" to make those suggestions and are even so arrogant to call the many of the fluids "lifetime".

    Wait, there's no timing belt on this vehicle?

    What's the single most costly item on the maintenance list?

    It's a timing chain, much more reliable and you don't really have to replace it.

    I'm just curious as for the part numbers. It may not be necessary now but it's worth listing here once we find out.

    We should also list all the light bulb codes for all the lights in the FR-S so people can use this as a resource. DO it up MDT!!

    Which spark plugs does it take?

    The manual transmission will not have a dipstick, this is usually only seen in trans-axles. The TL70 Will be equipped with Two either 24mm six point head fill/drain plugs or Two 10mm hex plugs.

    Spark Plug Info:

    Manufactured by Denso, Iridium Type

    Back to the Transmission fluid question, No Toyota is NOT the only manufacturer to use a similar type fluid, Toyota W/S is specific to Toyota/Lexus/Scion but others like, MB, BMW,AUDI,VW and many more have similar type systems.

    I will gladly do more write ups as part numbers become available, as for bulbs general type and wattage is available, not size or numbers yet.

    Interesting, I thought Scion was going to 12 months /10K miles oil service intervals on all their cars. I guess it will be all cars except the FR-S......
