Full Answer

Regular maintenance includes replacing the oil and oil filter, checking for recalled parts and rotating the tires every 5,000 miles. The technician must also check the air in the tires, inspect the brakes and perform a road test to ensure the vehicle is functioning properly.

At 15,000 miles, maintenance tasks include those performed at 5,000 miles along with additional tasks. For example, the technician must check the transfer case, differential fluids, cooling system and exhaust system. At 30,000 miles, the maintenance schedule includes all tasks performed at 5,000 and 15,000 miles as well as inspecting the distributor cap and inspecting and replacing air filters. A multi-point inspection is also necessary.

At each stage, the technician should check for leaks and other problems that may interfere with the function of the vehicle. Some tasks, such as replacing tires when they appear worn, should be completed as needed to maintain the vehicle. When using synthetic oil, it is necessary to change the oil and oil filter every 10,000 miles rather than every 5,000.
