    Scheduled maintenance

    I want to here your maintenance tips. I'm putting a list together of items to take care of at certain mileage/time.

    For ex: I check my clutch fluid every time I get gas.
    I change my oil every 5,000 miles.
    Rotate tires 5-10,000
    And so

    Let me here all of your tips.

    Thanks

    Maint. Intervals depend on how you drive your car and the conditions you drive it in.
    How many miles are on the car?

    that's pretty high... most people do every 3,000 or 3 months, which ever comes first... also just wondering why you're checking your clutch fluid...

    About 65,000.

    I know it depends on driving habits and conditions. I'm just looking for ruff ideas, and what you do.

    Ive always (since I started driving) changed my oil every 5k. Im running Redline in it, and Ive heard it will run longer. I wouldn't do it with out a UOA and then Im not even sure if I would.

    I check the clutch fluid because after changing my master cyl and noticing how black the fluid was in it I did some reading. Seems it gets clutch dust in it and the causes other problems. If the reservior starts getting cloudy I suck the fluid out and put fresh in.

    Sticking clutch pedal write-up

    About 1/3 of the way down it says "for info click here".

    If you click on it, it is a neat video.
