Coming up on 30K check up
According to the owners manual, using schedual "B", I should do the following:
Change engine oil and filter--No problem there.
Rotate tires--I can do that too.
Inspect air cleaner filter and replace if necessary--That's easy.
Inspect PCV valve replace if necessary--I will replace it regardless.
Replace spark plugs--Any recommendations? I have the 3.7 v6 with QT1.
Drain and refill the front and rear axles--Really?
Drain the transfer case and refill.--Does QT1 have a transfer case?
I went to the dealer to inquire about the 30K maintenance and the book the service writer showed me had a price of around $375. How much, about, will it run me to do it myself?
BTW, the service writer said it would be cheaper to do it piece-meal than all at once. He also suggested that, because the previous owner was a rental company, I should also do:
Transmission service: $179.95
Fuel system service: $169.95
Your thoughts on the matter?
