Re: Scheduled Maintenance
Tire rotation is easy and I just changed my rear transaxle fluid and it is cake. Just bought my ranger so I'm doing all the maintenance now since I have no idea what has been done to it. So far I've changed the oil, spark plugs, rear transaxle fluid, front and rear brakes, coolant, air filter, pcv valve, and drained some transmission fluid (fluid was good but was over filled). I still have to change the front transaxle fluid, replace the fuel filter, grease my chasis and emergency brake line, and now find out where my coolant leak is coming from along with other general parts cleaning.
I've always changed the oil on my wife's and my cars along with disk brakes, but have never had a vehicle with enough miles to do the rest. It takes a bit of time when you are first doing it, but it's not hard. My wife's Toyota Solara is approaching 100k now so I will be doing a lot of the same work on her car and it should take me a lot less time.
