Off topic maintanance!! Lol

Ok so I had a scare! I thought I had an electrical problem because all my lights were acting weird. Come to find out I just needed to change my blinker fluid and it was fixed, lol. Then my 4 wheel drive was acting funny aswell so I looked underneath only to find out my 4 belts that turn my wheels were missing teeth so I opted for some bicycle chains to replace those weak serpentine belts, lol. Does anyone have any other suggestions on what else to look out for? P.S already checked my muffler bearings there fine, my mufflers still as loud as ever. Thanks for your info in advance, thought I'd make everyone smile today.. \m/ (*-*) \m/

Did you remember to change the air in your tires from winter to spring air yet??? That may throw you a code later

Don't forget to rotate your headlights...that right side one gets more wear and tear and will cause your rig to tip to the right if you don't rotate it to the other side. And keep them oriented up...or you will find the rig upside down in the garage trying to re-orient itself....

Quiet please.
Have found special way to improve gas mileage.
Shush, tell no one.
Install budget boost spacers on rear only.
Now Jeep always running down hill.
Use much less gas.
Donít spread around, keep secret.

How about your 710 cap? Is it on the right? If it's upside down you might put OIL in it by mistake. If you come across a used Flux Capacitor, let me know, mine's almost out of uridium. I just replaces my Kanoodler valve today, took three hours, WHAT A PAIN IN THE *SS!

The glove box needs to be refilled with fresh enthusiasm.

The console needs new guts for the passenger. Get the powdered kind it doesn't spoil as easy.

Tire valve cores should be rotated every 3000 miles with the oil changes. Front to back only, otherwise it'll make DW.

Blinker fluid, muffler bearings, and elbow greese must be in high demand right now. Autozone and Napa are out every time I go in. I found this place on line...their prices are perfect, and they are always stocked! Excellent Customer Service!

KaleCoAuto, Hard to find automotive items!

If your tires have lettering then you better check their alignment. I've seen them get out of sync, where you may have Goodyear on top of one tire and Goodyear on the bottom of the next.

Don't forget to empty the gas tank. Otherwise your Jeep will be high all the time.

next time you change kanoodler valve us a metric screw driver and a left handed cresant wrench. its much easier, should cut your time in half!

Coat your wipers with Vaseline before it rains and use lots of it, you won't believe the difference on your windshield!! And be sure to drink your Ovaltine.

Don't forget to rotate your gears!! You wouldnt want 1st wearing more than reverse.
Also if you open your doors when coming to a stop your brakes will last twice as long!

If you filled 'em with Guinness they should be good to go. Might have a little wander though And the gear oil will do you wonders. I think that was one of my grandmothers old secret elixirs she had me take
