I just bought a companion for my '93 . . . this one is a '92 Vanden Plas with 90,000 miles on the odometer. A visual inspection suggests the car has been very well-kept, but there is a records gap of a few years between the original owner who had the vehicle dealer-serviced through 60,000 miles / early 2000s, and the owner prior to myself. What might others here suggest about going through the mechanical components of the car? Is there anything specific that I might want to ask my shop to inspect?
As well, on a separate note, do you do oil changes yourself, or do you rely on a shop? I think the only thing discouraging me from doing it myself is the awkward location of the oil filter. Thanks in advance.
