Maintenance on 2012 with 200k miles prior to long trip

Postby TNhunter » Fri Apr 30, 2021 3:32 am

My 2012 has 205k miles on it and was wondering what maintenance I might do on it prior to a long trip out west. I’ve recently changed the drive belt, coolant, transfer case fluid, front and rear differential fluids, oil and filter, going to drain and fill the transmission fluid. I changed the spark plugs at about 160k.

I think you've basically covered it all other than double checking your fluids before leaving. You may want to check if your AC is working as I'm not sure how far west you're going, but here in Southern CA we're already in the low 90s starting today.

Inspect your tires, air pressure, and spare tire. Otherwise you're pretty set.

As so often I agree with Silverarrow :)
