We all do it.... Forget oil change for a few thousand, never check air pressure, never get routine alignments.... Fucking list never ends... So post em up...


Here's my Amsoil dry air filter I haven't cleaned in probably 3 years.. Fuck man

Tires are a wear item, but I've only rotated these probably 4 times in the 60k I've been running them and checked air less than 10 times.... Also this thing could've used an alignment

Having my own garage, I find it hard not to perform the necessary regular maintenance that my cars require.

I just realized the Boss is probably overdue for a fuel filter. It's been 17k miles. It's also time for an oil change. It's been to an AutoX, 2 dragstrip test n tunes, a road trip to the tail of the dragon, and driven to work a few times since the last oil change. It's been about 4,000 miles, but driven relatively hard for most of them.

I dont really change the oil in the Honda. I just add to it when it stops hitting vtec. I never put the summer tires back on. I wash it once a year....its probably due for a new fuel filter and air filter but I HAVE changed the plugs / wires within a yearish.

What else...it needs brakes.

The amp stopped working like.......last winter? :rofl: Finally swapped in the amp [MENTION=1909]utryd2[/MENTION] gave me awhile back. And the only reason that happened was b/c I had it in the car when I was at [MENTION=340]Eagle[/MENTION]s and we were drinking and I wanted to be productive.

Should take a picture of the tires on my Pathfinder... One is literally bald, and the others are dry rotted. I'm skating on thin ice. Will bite the bullet in a week or two and get new ones. I usually go by the "if it aint broke, dont fix it" motto though.

Too bad TCG uploads is down. Had a picture of the TA's MAF from a few years ago that looked like a rat's nest.

I thought the BOSS had the lifetime in-tank filter like us lowly Coyote guys... not that I wouldn't feel better if it was changed often like the old ones...

T/A needs all kinds of maintenance work. Oil change, it leaks like a sieve. Needs a new radiator cap, rear speakers, pass side window needs an alignment, drivers need a motor and I have to get the hood repaired and painted.

The Escape gets regular oil changes and I just changes the sway bar end links.

Paint maintenance is what gets neglects most by me.
