What does a Jeep dealership do during an oil change OTHER than change the oil/filter?
Since the oil/filter is so ridiculously easy to change on the Wrangler, I will be doing that myself (and I will be keeping a carefully documented logbook with receipts), but are there other "things" the dealer does at this time?
i.e. grease fittings, lubricate hinges, etc. etc. i.e. what would I be missing out on by doing it myself? I don't mind bringing the Jeep in for OTHER regular maintenance tasks (other than those I can't easily do myself), but I just don't know what else they do on the Jeep. The dealer wanted $120 to do the oil change with Castrol Syntec last time I was in....told them to stuff it. (Though the oil alone is $60 up here at Canadian Tire) - but $60 to spin the filter off and pour in some oil is crazy.
My last van had like 18 grease fittings etc, so having those done by a dealer or drive-in oil change place was almost worth it. I don't see ANY fittings on my Jeep.
