100,000 Maintenance

The PSD in my sig is a about 5k from turning over 100,000 miles--I change the oil, and service the tranny every 20,000, and fuel filter every 15K--but at 100K--what are other suggested maintenance items--my initial list is coolant and powersteering--anything else?

Thanks [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: 100,000 Maintenance

Might want to consider flushing the brake fluid also.

Points and distributer cap

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Excellent reply although you are dating yourself...how many folks on here know what points are, have replaced them, and set the gap on them? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]

If you are going to replace the points and distributor cap then you might want to do the muffler bearing at the same time just to make the job easier.

I've found that using a brass magnet works best when ever you have to deal with muffler bearings.

Re: 100,000 Maintenance

RussM, I was hoping the sages on this forum would have some good advice for you, as my 02 is close to 100K.

All you got was a bunch of smart_azz comments - 3000 out of work comedians and these guys are looking for a job:-)

The brake fluid flush seems real, how about power steering as well?

Re: 100,000 Maintenance

Good time for general checkover, as you intended; consider inspection/replacement of --

all belts
all hoses
brakes, including parking brake
all fluids you have not already covered in recent maintenance
thorough engine compartment cleaning
remove all accumulated clutter from glove box, etc.
new floor mats

Nothing really special about 100k. If things are running good keep going with the schedual you use. Everybody worries about that magic 100k, just another number. NOW, if you have some oil leaks, waterpump leaks or other actual warranty stuff get those things taken care of under warranty, otherwise don't worry and just keep doing your routine on maintenance. Maybe give your PSD a 100k present and change ALL fluids and give it a good wash and enjoy.....

Re: 100,000 Maintenance

The big thing to really do at 100,000 is to make sure the air in the tires is rotated, probably hasnt been done since the factory done it when put in new, hehehehe.

No, really, just follow whats in the owners manual, it has the things that should be done at different intervals.
