The Joy of Oil Changes
I love my Jeep. Rex is his name and I have done a lot of work to him. A 3-inch lift, 1-inch body and motor mount lift, belly-up skid plate, sport cage, bumpers, tire carrier and several other modifications. I also perform my own maintenance. I love to do my own work and get my hands dirty. I am not sure if I actually save money, but for me it is about knowing things are done right. For those readers out there like me who like to change their own oil and differential fluid, lube the chassis and perform all the other routine maintenance, there are some things you need to keep track of.
In order to keep your car under warranty, you must follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule as found in the owner’s manual. Warranty claims can be much easier if you stick to the schedule and keep good maintenance records. Not only that – proper maintenance and a documented history of that work typically helps resale value.
