    Can I contribute?

    I'm ready to close in on the purchase of used 987 but on rainy days I would like to escape to the garage and spend some quality time with my car. I may be sick but I love washing, waxing, buffing, cleaning and treating my car with T.L.C. However, I would also enjoy some "under the hood time" changing plugs, oil, filter etc. Based on all I hear and read the "under the hood time" should be left to the shop pros. In order to save some money, and still feel like I am contributing to the running success of my car, is there anything outside of cleaning etc., that is safe to do under the hood or elsewhere? My garage is my santuary I plan on sending some pics, I'm surprised more GARAGE pics are not posted. There is not a auto nut alive that is not interested in getting ideas, from other auto nuts, on applications they can apply to there own garage.

    Re: Can I contribute?

    Change your oil and filter. Change your brake fluid, clutch fluid. Plugs last a looooong time. You can get under car and check for loose bolts, hoses, fittings. Check your serpentine belt and clean dust and grit off of engine from behind seat. THAT should keep you busy. Messing with valve train is forbidden, clutch is self adjusting (if I remember correctly). Install headers, bigger rotors if not so equipped etc... . The best part of "garage time" is just waxing the thing and using it for eye candy.
