Default general maintenance.

it would be nice if there was an area with information on how to do just regular general maintenance.

like in techinfo. replete with tools needed and step-by-step for all general maintenance and when to do it.

I like it. Gearheads are mobilizing and (uh..guys wake up).. ok..they'll mobilize in a couple hours.

We are on it.

New category added to Techinfo for it this morning. This will be general SCHEDULED maintenance and tuneup items. Any troubleshooting/repair things will still go into the old categories.

Gearheads are working on procedures for normal maintenance stuff. If you have specific suggestions, or would like to contribute in any way, post here.

Need procedures to rotate the engine and change the tire fluid every 30,000 miles.

Some of what i would consider normal maintence is kind of covered in other sections already. is that going to be moved or are you going to create a double post of it? Changing supercharger oil comes to mind, but i don't know if that would be considered as part of this section. either way, i really like the idea of it!
