Hey guys. Today I drove my truck up to the local oil change shop due to a tight personal schedule this week. Fast forward to the oil change, they asked what tire PSI I wanted, I replied just leave them as they are. I watched the guy fill up my windshield washer fluid, and he overflowed it like crazy. Upon getting home, I noticed multiple motor oil fingerprints on my bug deflector (even after he "wiped" them off with a red shop rag (!!).
So, basically this got me thinking... since we are all pretty anal about our cars, do you do any level of maintenance yourself?
Typically I do my own oil change, rotate my own tires, clean K&N air filter, fill up any fluids which require it if needed, and everything pretty much. I guess it would be easier for me to say the only things I haven't done personally are:
-Power steering pump (Dealer)
-Transmission fluid change / differential change (Dealer)
-Miscellaneous electrical issue I had (Dealer)
-Obviously Discount Tire mounted BFG's on my wheels.
I think that pretty much covers it, so yeah, I just thought this could be an interesting topic. Sure, most of us clean our vehicles ourselves, but what about the rest of the things that need to be done??
