I think you mean hopefully we will get another free tank of gas a few years down the road. That's like a month of driving for my household for free. :)

Am I crazy or didn't they already have a recall where they basically "checked torque" of the fuel pressure sensor? Kind of silly that they were already in that area and did nothing but put a wrench...

Hundreds of dollars for a new one, but check eBay... there isn't much guarantee that a used one will work with your car, or that you will find a dealer willing to reprogram it though.

Try multiple different dealers, and yes they will make you pay for the diagnostic each time but it's worth it to get the job done. Sounds like you're not close to an urban center though so this may...

My guess is a fluid is burning near the outside air intake and being brought into the car. You may have a leak of coolant or oil? Run the car and open the hood, look underneath and in the engine...

You just need some way of pumping new fluid into the fill hole. Car needs to be level. I believe you just pump fluid in and then let it drip out until it stops. But it only cost me $70 to have...

You can look it up in your service schedule, but in terms of just time... I just do it every 3 years or so. You won't notice anything but it's not an expensive service.

I don't think this is true, the GS430 uses a belt. GS300, GS350, GS460 use chains.

If they are doing the top engine clean then it is not a gimmick, it involves taking the valve cover off and soaking all of the valves in a toxic marinara for hours.

I just had my fluid all changed, it looked like they used some kind vacuum device to do the whole thing. If you ask me it's not worth the bother to save only $60 or whatever so infrequently.

Look at the exhausts. Find the catalytic converters (easy to spot), slightly upstream of them you'll find the A/F Sensors.
