Above And Beyond Maintenance

Let's make a list of things that aren't listed in the owner's manual as regular maintenance items but you can still do anyway as preventative maintenance or just to keep things in tip top shape. For example, I was thinking:

1. Lubricate lock cylinders, door latches, hinges, and hydralics

2. condition door seals

3. ????

I'd love to get around to doing some of this on my car, bring it completely back to it's former glory. Add to the list!

1. Lubricate lock cylinders, door latches, hinges, and hydralics
2. condition door seals
They're both covered already...
^^^Scheduled maintenance page 7 (2004 manual):
Check Every Six Months for All Vehicles:
❑ Check lap/shoulder belts and seat latches for wear and function.
❑ Check that externally mounted spare tire is tight (see Owner’s Guide).
❑ Check power steering fluid level.
❑ Check washer spray, wiper operation, and clean all wiper blades (replace blades as necessary).
❑ Check parking brake for proper operation.
❑ Check and lubricate all hinges, latches, door check straps (see dealer) and outside locks.
❑ Check and lubricate upper and lower sliding door tracks, if equipped.
❑ Check and clean sliding door contact switches, if equipped.
❑ Check and lubricate door rubber weatherstrips.
❑ Check and clean body and door drain holes.
❑ Check safety warning lamps (brake, ABS, air bag, safety belt) for operation.
❑ Check cooling system fluid level and coolant strength.
❑ Check battery connections and clean if necessary.
❑ Check clutch fluid level, if equipped.
If you don't have your original one, you can download a copy of the "Scheduled Maintenance Guide" from here:
Or, here's a direct link to the 2003 guide:
^^^See page 9 in that one.
