Scheduled Maintenance

The only maintenance done on my 2001 TJ since I bought it new has been a belt change, battery change, air filter change, and regular synthetic motor oil changes. She's at 60,000 miles now and coming up on her 10 year birthday. I don't know what needs to be updated to keep her running in top condition.

Please list what you think I :
a) must do
b) should probably do
c) do if I have money left over

Thanks for the help!

b. Fill in your profile...

Interesting that he says transmission at 90k. I always thought five years or 50k was a good idea? I recently did mine as it's been five years and 27k.

I'm glad wushaw noticed I was finishing up taking a leak in the picture and gladly pointed that out. When you gotta go, you gotta go.

ON to business... thanks for all the advice guys. Here is what I'm planning on doing:

Immediately: Spark Plugs, Differential, Transmission*, Transfer Case*

*Q: Do I need some sort of pump to get all the fluid out?

Later this year: Coolant and Brakes

If you guys can think of anything else please feel free to share!!!

For trans and transfer case, you can just take out the drain plug to let them drain. No need for a pump to get fluid out. You will need a pump to get the new fluid in.

I am not sure exactly which transmission you have, but this write-up is pretty useful for the general idea if you have not done it before:

If you do all the fluids and sparkplugs yourself its not that bad under 200 bucks and a afternoon worth of work.
