Hey
Total noob here
Wondering if someone could do me (and hopefully some others) a favour and make a list on all the things i need to check/replace when servicing a car? I know oil, oil filter, spark plugs but thats pretty much it (stop laughing)

Thanks heaps

Sam

don't forget air and fuel filters, good to change them every 10000ks and oil+oil filter every 5000.

Id also suggest going into Repco/Supercheap/Autobarn and buy a Gregories/Haynes Manual. If you want to learn to service your own car they are a lifesend for beginners.

You will probally also need some form of car stands or ramps to if youre going to be doing it regularily.
