Icon5 Things my truck needs.

A/T Fluid replacement and leak fix. (The 'link' at the rear of the truck on the drive shaft is slightly wet from A/T fluid.)

Sway bar link installed. (I've been driving over 60k miles without this, CarMax sold me the vehicle with a broken sway bar link several years ago, and I asked them why I had a 'chain' sound underneath the truck every time I went over bumps, they told me it was normal. -Thanks Brakes4Less for informing correctly, and being willing to help me install it for less than normal labor fees.- )

Constant check engine light, the most I know is it has to do with an O2 sensor, sometimes it pops up as other things. I can't figure out what it is.

A/C dryer un-install, re-install. I can't get the pipe nut loosed on the A/C dryer, and some of the tubing looks foreign to me, I have no idea how to un-hook that.

I have zero $, and just put $600, into a dangerously needed brake job. Replaced the master cylinder components, etc.

It looks like my truck is in it for the long haul, so I might as well make her run the best.

114k miles, oil changed regularly, depending on driving habits. New spark plugs/wires.

What did you have done to your brakes? Just pad and shoe replacement?

Pads, shoes, rotors re-surfaced, master cylinder, and I know I'm missing something else...

Nothing I was capable of doing.
