I just recently hit 5800 miles on my sandstorm, i had the oil changed at 5200. Is there something else that i should have maintenanced? what about at 10,000...15,000...20,000...and so on? how often should I have it tuned up? sorry if I sound dumb in this field but I just really wanna prolong the life of my sandstorm for ever. please someone help me out, oh plus i suck at diy work lol. so ill be paying for the work.

if you're going to take it in, just tell them how many miles, and they'll let you know what needs done. OR, you can look at the maintenance guide. It has all the details of what they recommend for each interval.

One thing I ALWAYS have to remind the dealership about is to lube the drive shafts when it goes in for the oil change. I forgot once, and the drive shaft didn't get the grease.

I hate the fact you need to remind them! The service writer even needs to remind the mechanic! Why put it on their service description if they ain't meanin to do it.....excuse my rant :mad:

Rant excused....but I have the same rant. Oh well....just remind your service writer to put on the service sheet to lube the drive shafts.

Well, get together with some peeps from here and hit a trail! You have to use the 4WD or you run the risk of damaging your t-case and such. It's in the manual. So come on, man! Get out there!!

Mine isn't either....4X2 here. And I still go on a majority of the runs without problems.

Did you know we have a rare FJ? Only 7% of FJs are made in 4x2. ;D
