Was331, Sorta a hard question to answer. So much should be done to a vehicle. If you have not kept up with your SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE, you need to catch up.I am not a paid mechanic, but I do know where to look for the correct answers. I repair mine (Real Jeeps), Family, and Friends vehicles So not trying to make you mad, I am incapable of writing everything you need to check. I make WHOMEVER, get the repair manual for their vehicle. We Start There! This is something that will help you, when something has you on the side of the road broke down. These Manuals have "SCHEDULES" When to replace/ check/ change Components. Not only that, tell you step by step how to repair almost any part of your rig. Even if you cannot do this, a feller like me could reference your manual, to get you going. So GET YOU A MANUAL--Catch up on what you have NEGLECTED, Thats the best you can do. I keep tire plugs and a small, cheapo, cigarette lighter plug in Compressor in Our vehicles. My Jeeps are basically a rolling Service Center, with all the stuff I carry. Another recommendation I give (as I do, as I did not sign up for pay here) is what I do on our vehicles. If you have a Starting Key with a "Chip", get a spare and hide it inside your rig. Get a Regular (cheap) key made to open your doors (to get to the other key). With SOLID COPPER WIRE, wire the Cheap Key under your car sorta hidden. MAKE Mama get under there and ACTUALLY SEE IT! (Tellin' don't cut it, I Know, have one window, newer than the rest, "Cause she understood") These are maybe 1/2 the Manuals I have, there's one for each Vehicle, in a monster ziplock bag, IN EACH VEHICLE!----I hope this gets you motivated, I do the same to my own family!---The Medic
