I'm starting to notice a dip in MPG. I used to get 300-330 miles per tank and as of last fall, I've been seeing the gas light come on sooner and sooner.
I know it's time to do some maintenance. As of now, I know I'm due to:
*add more break fluid (have to do this about every 18 months)
*rotate the tires
*change the oil (a bit overdue) and replace oil filter
*replace air filter
*my tire pressure is only low on 3 tires by a pound or two.
NOTE: I can do all of this myself.
there's some other maintenance I'd like to do, but without a garage and proper tool set, I'm not sure how much a do-it-yerselfer can manage:
*changing out the spark plugs
*changing out the transmission fluid
*Changing out the coolant
*re-aligning the tires
*inspect/adjust the timing belt
Are these some maintenance jobs the average guy can do with some help from the internet, or am I better off taking it to the dealership and renting a car for the day?
(My car is a 2000 intrepid, and I do have a 3 ton jack w/ 2 stands.)
