So I bought a Groupon coupon for a $19 oil change at the Dealership near my apt and they must have done a full inspection of my TJ because it took an hour and a half. Normally i wouldnt get an oil change at a dealership, but for $19 it seemed worth it. the reason i suspect they did an inspection is they were looking for ways to get me to spend more $ while i was there.
They said that the main belt on the engine is starting to crack and i should replace it ($90) but that it may last another week, another month or even longer.
They also said the front shock (which is at an angle in the engine as the person explained to me) is leaking and i will start to notice the car fram shake when i hit bumps. i havent noticed anything so i told them not to fix anything.
Are these things i would be able to replace fairly easily myself, or worth having a non-dealership garage look at?
As always thanks for the help
