My daughters boyfriend has a 2017 Toyota Tacoma with 60 K. He went to get the vehicle checked at the local Toyota dealer and they recommended the following as the vehicle was running a bit rough.

1. Cabin air filter ($56)
2. Air filter ($28)
3. AC refresher ($80) - have no idea what this is.
4. Induction system cleaning ($140) - have no idea what this is.
5. Fuel injection cleaning ($100)

Seems rather expensive as most can be done in my driveway including using some good fuel system cleaner.

Ideas,comments?

Just a money grab.

Check the engine air filter and cabin air filter, and buy new ones from walmart or wherever if dirty. The AC doesn't need anything unless it's not working right, in which case it should still be under warranty.

Induction cleaning and fuel system cleaning should really just be called wallet siphoning. Buy top tier gas and the D4S system will keep things clean.

IIRC the 2GR FKS calls for a 60k replacement interval on the spark plugs. Something they apparently didn't mention.

Tell him to find another Toyota dealer.

Googled AC refresher, it's stuff to clean evaporator and vents. Kit 00289ACRKT is about 35 bucks. Some dealers had it for quite a bit less.

Money grab.
Air filters need changing every 30,000 miles. Take a look. It’s at 60,000 miles so, it probably needs an air filter.
Cabin air filters need changing every 20,000 miles. This won’t affect the engine’s performance.
At 60,000 miles, it probably needs a set of spark plugs.
If the A/C is functioning properly, it doesn’t need any refrigerant.
Pour a bottle of Chevron Techron in the fuel tank and fill with 93 octane and run it. Do that after changing the plugs.

Probably about $120 job if you can DIY vs close to $400 at the dealer. Driveway is a good option in Florida.

1, 2, and 3 won't cause rough running. Agree with finding another dealer.

That stuff can be done in the driveway; I wonder if the throttle body needs a cleaning and/or new plugs. "Running rough"? Like poor idle, poor mpg or poor power?

Wow! Are there any other Toyota dealers near by? You are correct in you being able to do this in your driveway.

If the plugs are supposed to be replaced at 60K per owner's manual, I would do that.

I would also clean the throttle body and the mass air flow sensor. Make sure you use the appropriate cleaner as the MAF requires a special cleaner just for MAF's. YouTube it.

Start using a "top tier" gasoline and a few tanks of that will clean up the fuel system. If anxious, you could use a bottle of Techron or something similar. I would use the cleaner
before I changed the plugs. That's just me.

I only use Toyota OEM filters and plugs from a dealer. There are too many fakes. If I were to go online for purchase, I'd make sure they were coming from a Toyota/Lexus dealer.
Like on eBay, there is a Toyota dealer in Winston Salem NC, Modern Toyota and I know they are legit.

You can cause yourself problems if you get a cabin air filter that is more restrictive than the OEM. It "could" inhibit air flow circulation.

Is the Taco showing any codes?
