    I started writing my own, and thought- hey, somebody here probably already has one. Does anybody have a comprehensive checklist developed? One where you can record date and miles and check each item as you go. I get tired of forgetting what I did when, even though I save all receipts. The Haynes manual checklist falls short as far as I'm concerned, for example there's no mention of U-joints, or lubing the CV joint center ball on the front driveshaft. I run my K5 on the street and wheel it pretty hard 3- 4 times a month.

    If nobody has a good custom one, I'll keep fooling around with the one I've been working on and send it to whoever can use it.

    Thanks all.

    Wow, I swear this board is transmitted to my head. I was just thinking I need to develope one of these while I was under my truck swapping the oil pump 2 days ago. I had planned to actually make one on the train tomorrow (right after I package that write-up for you Kevin!), I'll post it when I get to work. Dang, a psychic website...

    Hey y'all, here's what I did this morning on the way in to work:

    (2 versions on page; had to link directly to the page, site won't allow direct linking to files).
    k5.8m.com/links.htm

    It may not be exactly what was asked for, but it's what I was thinking about the other day so I figured I'd share it. The checklist is an awesome idea, since I'm constantly remembering stuff to check as I'm putting my tools away... That will be tomorrow's commute...

    Oil pump worked out awesome, Mike!! I thought my guage was going to pop when I started the thing! It now sits at about 20PSI hot, in gear, at idle, and like 60 at 2000 rpm! Not like the old one that sat at zero in less harsh conditions... I'm going to do the bearings anyway, just because the pan was so incredibly easy to take off, and looking at it, looks like a cakewalk job.

    Looks great! I'll try and get a fire apparatus maintenance card scanned/copied to pilfer ideas from too.

    I can't seem to get that to work. I get an "access forbidden or authentication not supported" error when clicking either the DOC or PDF link. Can you email it to me at bglass@flexjet.com?

    Thanks!

    I've been working on 2 different ones. One quick one I did was in Microsoft Excel. The one I'm semi-working on will be Access based. It will open with a page listing all your vehicles. From there you go to "add a new record" "record a service" etc.. It will have a place to put milage, where parts were purchased from, warranty that may be applicable &amp; when it expires, price paid for part... You know, all the good stuff. Plus, I hope when its all done, you will beable to run a query on each vehicle and tell what all you had spent money on, types of parts, how much money, how often it failed. Help to identify problem parts &amp; stuff to carry with you.

    Later guys,

    Have you checked any of the shareware sites for existing stuff? Just clicking on the first couple of links from a search on "auto maintenance" and shareware at http://www.downlinx.com/proghtml/142/14242.htm

    I have 5 lists that I use regularly. One is a checklist for load-up kit, one is a pre-trail list, one is a post-trail, one is 2x per year list. My other maintenance record consists of every section of the truck (front diff, rear diff, t-case, engine etc) broken down into all the different parts (wheel bearings, brake pads, balljoints, oil change, grease etc) with listings for date, mileage, price, part #, notes etc. I included the part numbers because I got tired of trying to remember the different years, and specifics of all the donor vehicles making up my truck, I just call and ask for part #... whatever. If you want, I can email a sample to ya.

    Mike
