[RC] Maintainance for trucks. - Rebecca Hackworth

That is why I learned to do a lot of work myself, especially on my
Gas truck.  

Brake pad changes are simple and cost about $45

Newer cars have ceramic brake pads and are more expensive.  don't
know if newer trucks do too.  If so, will expect more $$.  doing your
own often gets you away from doing the rotors.  That is where it gets
expensive.  My '91 is $100 apeice.

But the Catalytic Converter is $600 for parts, and they go every
60,000 mi or so.

So far I can do simple oil/filter changes.  Fuel filter changes, Fuel
pump changes, brake pad changes, drive train dissassemble and
re-attachment.

GET A GOOD REPAIR BOOK YOU UNDERSTAND.  There is nothing that hard
about regular maint....
Becky and the gang
