Preventative Maintainance

My '91 Geo Tracker has 130K and is still ticking...but I want to make sure I'm doing my part, at least until the dreaded day on the side of the road gets here. I check the oil & coolant at every gas stop. Just changed the wire's, plugs, dist & rotar. I'm about to put a new alternator belt on it & change the oil again.

My question is what are some other things I can look into changing & checking to keep me off the side of the road...it would be nice to get another 100K out of the Geo.

another 100,000 miles is very possible

find the owner's manual in the glove box, blow the dust off it and follow the recommended maintenance to the letter, no matter how dumb the task seems, it wouldn't be in there if it wasn't important.


if you don't have one, find one.

Thumbs up

I agree with Mike 100%. www.helminc.com services GM owner's manuals/portfolios.

Also, pick up a shop manual for the vehicle, it is worth the money. I've gotten mine on Ebay as cheap as $15 for a $100 book.

They always give great maintenance information there too.

memory being what it is, I can't remember...If it's got a timing belt, and never been changed, it's more than time to do it...
