100K kms service
It's been a while since I've posted. I've opted to do the 60K mile (100K km) service on my own (06 GT 3.5). Mostly because I noticed oil consumption in the last few months. I've added a quart and a half within 1000 miles so I assume my plugs are due (or past due), even though they're rated for up to 160K kms (yeah, right). As the car is approaching ten years old, they are on my list to change.
Outside of plugs, I want to clean the throttle body. I didn't have luck in removing it a couple years ago as there's a hard coolant line that runs close to it, so come hell or high water I will remove the TB this time as I can see with the flashlight that it has built up / caked on crap on the inside of it.
Outside of changing the plugs and TB cleaning, anything else for 100K kms? Just to note the trans is good. Front end seems to be OK yet. I don't think a 100K service is as complicated as it once was. I'm hoping the old (original) plugs are what is causing my oil consumption as the oil is still golden brown after 6K miles. Thoughts?
