As stated in the title, I am considering doing this soon. My car is a 2000 Chrysler LHS with 106,000 KM (66,000 miles). Should I do it based on the age or am I safe waiting until the manufacturer recommended service interval of 160,000 KM (100,000 miles)?
If I decide to go through with it, does anyone have any experience with the DNJ kit
? It seems like the most complete kit out there for the best price.
I would use this opportunity to swap the coolant as well. I have three bottles of Recochem coolant that is supposedly made for Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep, It is orange in color, you can see the specs here
, Does this seem like a safe alternative to picking it up at the dealer?
I am still not decided if I will do this myself or bring it to the shop. How many hours labour would this be for a professional shop? If I do it myself, I will refer to one of the write ups already here. is it doable with just ramps? I can turn a wrench, have changed struts, radiator, p/s pump, valve cover gaskets, but never done a timing belt before, would it be a bit too much to do on my own?
Thanks for answering!
