105k mile service
I was checking my owner's manual this afternoon as I'll be rolling up on the 105k mile service in about a month. The oil/filter is no problem, and the fuel filters looks simple enough - I read the article posted here.
However it also lists a coolant change and for some reason I've never done that on any of my vehicles. What's involved? Is it just removing a plug, letting it drain, then refilling? The manual just says change, not flush, so I assume it's not necessary to push any fluid through it prior to the final fill. What do you do with your used coolant? I take my oil to the local tractor dealer because they use it to run their shop heater in the winter.
It also says to lube the front end, steering linkages, u-joints, driveshafts, etc. Are the grease zerks easy to get to? Anything that's hidden from view? I've keep a general automotive grade grease in my gun that I assume will work fine for this stuff...
I bought the truck used a little while ago and this will be the first service I've done to it.
