I think the beeps are the seat belt indicator. Not sure why that is going off when I'm buckled and there is no passenger.

Changed my spark plugs, found some oil on the threads. Thinking that its a valve cover gasket gone bad after doing some research on here. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Also ordered some DEA engine and tranny mounts. Hopefully doesn't take more than 2 weeks to get here.

Doing tranny fluid change. Any one used Royal Purple 75W-80 with a bottle of synchromesh? I wanted to use Redline MTL but no one has it on this god forsaken island.

EDIT: I decided to go with RedLine MT85 which is a 75W-85 GL4 which has synchromesh already in it. I wanted to use MTL but the only carrier for redline gear oil is back ordered for it. MT85 is a little thicker but i think it will be ok because Hawaii doesn't get cold weather. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Lastly going to change my oil and clean my MAF.

If any one else can think of something else to do for maintenance at 100K miles let me know.
