Thanks driveright, when i was purchasing it, the steering column bush was replaced by the existing owner and as part of that the steering fluid was replaced - hence i dont have it in my list.
But yes yet to do brake and coolant replacement - still trying to find time for it.
Finally had the time to sort out a few final items which were outstanding since purchase :-
Coolant Replacement , Brake bleeding valve replacement and brake bleeding , radiator shroud fitted , Wheel alignment checked(it was fine anyways).
Here are some pics of it :-
Followed some really elaborate steps for collant replacement , flushed with liquimoly radiator cleaner first, drained from both the radiator outlet as well as engine block, then flushed/drained with 12 litres of distilled water , kept the heater and ac on , brought it to temperature so valves opened and circulation happens and finally put in a new super long life coolant from Toyota, toyota coolants are one of the best and apparently provide a 7 year life and 1.6lakh km - so this leaves me with a lot of peace of mind.
Engine block drain of coolant
Sorry spilled some of hulks blood in the process
This upper radiator shroud was missing and broken, procured from japan and fitted it in
Also bought this brake bleeding valve from aliexpress and fitted in, the front right brake bleeding valve was broken and i cudnt do this hence properly.
Yes always good to follow some basic best practices - coolant systems never really go bad in modern cars, the only issue that happens is rust if you dont change the fluid, so take care of that and use a good next generation coolant and you are good for over a lakh kms - i have no clue when the old owners changed it in this, so better to set my own baseline.
