    I have an 84K5 with almost 200,000 miles on it! I am going camping in about 2 weeks to Big Sir,CA. which is 2 hours away from where I live. My question is what should I check before I go? I know fluids,and air pressure..the motor is a 95 crate motor,since I have put it in I have never really done anything to it! How do you know when you should change cap,rotor,spark plugs ,and wires? I don't want to have any problems on this trip! That is why I am doin all of this stuff now!! Any comments and advice would be great!! Thank's

    Yes I would do a complete tune-up and fluid change. Also change the fuel filter. Also check hoses and belts. Doing a tune-up depnds on the miles and type of driving you do. How many miles are on the motor, trans?

    If you havent done a tune up in 15,000miles id change the cap rotor plugs oil fuel filter etc ,but I also drive mine a hundred miles a day to work and back so 200 miles is no big deal.
