    General Main (Grease/Oil) Check?

    So i'm still new to doing things on my own. Use to having the stealership do everything. I have only changed the oil twice but not sure what else to do? I know i should be greasing but not sure where/what to grease. Can anybody point me in the right direction to the grease ports? Also what else is there to be looking at/check/change?

    Thanks sorry for the newb questions but i want to learn and do things on my own. Tired of paying other people for half ass work and not knowing if they did it right or not.

    The front end parts are sealed meaning no grease fittings. How many miles are on it? Best thing you can do is check tierod ends and see if they have slack in them. If they do replace them and get it aligned.

    The key to keeping the car in tip top shape is once it starts making a noise or leaking or anything at all to figure out why its doing it.
    Have you done a complete tune-up yet?
    plugs, wires, fuel filter, oil and filter, air filter, Tranny fluid and filter if auto, Rear end fluid change, flush the coolant, check for any leaks...

    at 77k you have a little left before flushing the coolant. I think GM recommends every 100k for dexcool but it certainly doesn't hurt to do it a little early. Have you changed the rear end fluid or tranny fluid yet? Probably wouldn't hurt to do those as they're both probably due up. If it's an auto car the tranny filter is due also.
