Thumbs up Tuned up?!

So growing up with a single mother didn't quite made me learn many stuff MAN do, and I'm talking about messing around with automobiles, most of my uncles are very knowledgeable when it comes to do major mechanic work on their trucks, I however don't really fit into that category, yes I can disassemble something and mess with it but I might brake something... Well anyways what this post is about is that for the first time I did change the oil, oil filter, belt, spark plugs, and washed up the K&N air filter, it perhaps took me most of the day but hey I did it all by myself, not even my step dad helped me out, and I'm proud of myself

I am looking forward to many other things on my Ram in the near future as long money is available

Thanks for reading, enjoy your week!

That's awesome! There's something about a job well done (on your own) that makes it seem all that much better!

What usually gets me is time. I don't have time to tear apart my daily driver many times to fix a lot of things. Time, and sometimes, specialty tools.

Congrats on the achievement! I agree with Barnyard...there's nothing like a job well done when it's done personally.

So what's next, an engine swap?

Nice job man, congrats! Thanks for sharing your story, and I agree, time and tools are my problem as well, but you always feel better when you do it yourself!

Good stuff man. You learn a lot from doing things on your own, and if you break things, which'll happen, then you keep on going and keep on fixing. Far better than paying someone else to do it. Invest in some good tools and keep logging onto the forum and asking questions.

Thanks, I'd need advice, well more like a walk through on changing the spark plugs...

Thanks buddy, what's the proper tool used to change the spark plugs on an 02 ram?
