my jeep maintanence schedule - look ok?
I am very interested in keeping the next Jeep I own (hopefully another YJ) for a long time, if not for the rest of my Jeeping life. By using a mixture of my Chilton's manual, friends' suggestions, and my own common sense, I have come up with the following. Does it look adequate enough to keep a Jeep going for a while?
ENGINE OIL/FILTER - every 3000 miles
BALL JOINTS (GREASE) - 6000 miles
REAR GEAR OIL - 9000 miles
FRONT GEAR OIL - 15000 miles
TRANSMISSION OIL - 30000 miles
T-CASE OIL - 30000 miles
As far as types of oil, most are obvious and I think just about any will do. I do have questions about tranny and t-case oil, though. I've heard that regular SAE 75W-90 GL-5 gear oil will work in the tranny, and Dextron II or III ATF in the t-case. Does this sound good?
Also, is there any type of regular schedule you should keep as far as changing spark plugs, wires, distributor, rotor, brake pads and/or shoes, brake rotors, coolant, etc.? Or is it mainly just wait until something goes wrong and deal with it then? Thanks. Feedback wanted!
2000 TJ/4.0 - Stock, but that will change!
