The Mothership Maintenance Log #171

The Mothership is back on the road, but between the issue with the brake lights, and adding another passenger (now myself and two other people), I caved and drove my parents’ 2014 Camry to Atlanta. The trip went well, but I hurt my neck riding a roller coaster at Six Flags, so I’m waiting until I can crawl under the car to change the oil.

Tonight I bought some fresh engine oil and a filter. And it suddenly struck me that I’m not doing any record keeping of maintenance! Like, back on the very first page of this thread I had a notebook and all sorts of crap to keep organized with the car, but it just went out the window at some point during college and I never picked it back up. So I’m going to start again with this oil change.

The previous oil change was about six months ago, so it’s time. Just to be sure about everything I checked the service manual, which says engine oil should be changed every 7,500 miles or 12 months (page 82, 4-12).
