On my chevy prism (128,000 miles today), the only thing I really do myself is change the spark plugs. The rest I have Walmart do - rotate tires, change oil, wipers, & air filter. Changing brakes/timing belt I go to Midas. Coolant I go to whereever. I bought the socket and change my spark plugs which isn't bad after having a mechanic show me how to do it. Bit of a challenge cause the spark plugs are so deeply recessed & risk of stripping a plug if it doesn't get started right. Has anyone ever had a dealership show them this while they were buying the car? I'm thinking of having the dealer just show me how to do it while I'm buying it. Dealers seem more gracious before they have my money than after they have it.
