  • Change the engine oil and filter
  • Check and maintain all fluid levels as necessary
  • Lubricate suspension and steering linkage
  • Inspect and replace all filters as required
  • Inspect CV boots for damage or wear
  • Inspect oil belts and hoses

When Stopping for Fuel

  • Check engine oil and fluid levels
  • Check coolant levels and coolant reservoir
  • Visually check for under-inflated tires
  • Check the windshield washer fluid levels
  • Check for any fluids leaking from under the vehicle
