- Change oil and replace filter
- Inspect brake pads/rotors, lines & hoses and parking brake system
- Inspect wheel ends for endplay and noise
- Inspect engine cooling system and hoses
- Inspect exhaust system and heat shields
- Inspect steering linkage, suspension, and if equipped, driveshaft and ball joints
- Inspect tires for wear....Rotate em
- Replace or recharge air filter
- Replace fuel filter
- Replace cabin (interior) air filter
- Check trans fluid level, replace if needed

Got most of this from the scheduled maintenance book that i have for the car. Obviously continue changing your oil on your schedule (no need to do it again if it's only been 1 or 2k), but check the level as well.

Thats about it bud
