    engine oil:any old school 15W-40 will be best for this engine, i personally prefer mobil delvac 15W-40
    gear oil: toyota orignal GL4 75W-something

    it will be a good idea to change power steering oil but it shouldn't be necessary, if you do make sure you bleed it properly and also flush all the old fluid out. it uses simple ATF Dexron II or III, ZIC ATF III will work or you can use toyota's own power steering fluid.

    i prefer to buy cars with proper service histories, most of this becomes unnecessary then. if you get a car with unknown history it seems extreme to say that water pump and tensioner beering and similar should be replaced as unless something is wrong with them which a reasonable inspection would show theres no need to replace. same goes for timing belt if the milage is verified that is otherwise its a good idea to change it.

    i do agree on the fluids part though especially brake fluid which for some reason no one here ever changes.
