    I've been searching 4 different forums trying to gather information on all the maintenance recommendations. I have a 97 limited 4wd with 254k miles and wish to do EVERYTHING to keep it running good. I was hoping there was a thread I'm overlooking that has information on exactly what filters are in the car that should be changed (I know air, oil, etc. but not sure if I should be changing the auto trans filter or something else), what fluids are recommended, what intervals for everything etc.

    I am trying to cheat because while I don't mind reading for days and learning everything on my own, I also need to daily drive this thing and was hoping to order parts yesterday!

    Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    ps. A link to a working PDF manual would be awesome too!

    Helps a ton with the intervals. Noted all of that in my excel file. Thanks!

    I'll definitely try and remember. I'll look for your posts in the meantime, thanks.
