DIY periodic maintenance check list


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Many of us including myself do the routing maintenance work  including oil/filer change to save time wasted at service stations as well as the do the work properly. Though, we focus mainly on oilchange/oil filter change/airfilter change/cabinfilter change like key maintenance aspects, I thought it would be better to create a check list of activities thus the work done properly. First we can list the set of activities then our experts can   quote each activity and add more details,,,,,,,

 1. Check drive belt for cracks, fraying, wear, and adjust its tension

2.Check intake air hose for damage (vehicles with turbocharger)

3. Check radiator hoses for damage and proper connection

4. Check engine coolant level in reservoir 

5. Check air cleaner element for clogging and damage

6. Replace air cleaner element

7. Check fluid level in brake reservoir and clutch reservoir

8. Change brake fluid - better done at the agent

9. Check battery condition

10. Check suspension system for damage and looseness

11. Replace fuel filter - through agent

12. Check suspension arm ball joints for play, and dust covers for damage

13. Check driveshaft boots for damage

14. Check steering linkage for damage and loose connections (including seals and boots)

15. Check manual transmission for oil leakage

16. Check transfer for oil leakage

17. Check exhaust pipe connections for gas leakage, and check pipe installation

18. Check brake pedal and clutch pedal for free play

19. Check brake pads and discs for wear

20. Check fuel hoses and pipes for leakage or deterioration
