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.

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:

X2 on the scheduled maint guide in the maunual. Different configurations and vehicle usage will set the schedule on what needs to be done. if you read it some things need to be checked and others need to be replaced. get to know this book well so tou don't get Oversold on BS that doesnt need changing.
