Okay, my old thread(http://www.dodgeintrepid.net/showthread.php?t=199957) was obviously not cared about enough to keep dusted, so Here’s a new one!
First I’ll Start out with the things that I have done to my car since I joined DI.net on October 10, 2010.
•Change Spark Plugs [From Bosch Platinum (AKA pure garbage) to Champion Coppers gapped to .035]


•Wash Engine (That was a royal chore) :D


•Polish Headlights Repeatedly (each time they got clearer, and now I have a coat of wax on them, which is helpful)




•Change W/P, T/B, and Accessory Belts. (Sorry No Pictures)
•Change Oil Twice [By myself, using 10w-40 the first time (Don’t do that to your car, trust me)]

•Repaint Wiper arms




•Clean Carpets (Sorry No Pictures)
•Change Air Filter



And the list of OEM Features:
•3.5L 24 Valve V6 with 214 HP and 221 lb-ft torque
•Automatic Temperature Control Head
•Spruce Green Metallic Paint
•Anti-Lock Braking System
•Traction Control
•Touring Suspension Package
•AM Stereo & FM Stereo Infinity Radio With Graphic Equalizer and Cassette Tape Player
•Speed Variant Steering
•Power Leather Bucket Seats
•Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror

Problems needing repair:
•Small engine knock/miss thing
•Air Conditioner needs new Evaporator Core
•PAINT!!!!!

The car is older than me, and I can’t imagine life without her, I mean you can definitely tell that I have been working to keep her in well working condition.

Actually, when it gets warmer, I'm going to be doing that procedure for the 2nd time, they're starting to "settle" and you can see where the first coat of paint came off. I'm probably going to sand them before their 2nd painting though, and maybe add two or three coats.

She looks to be in good shape, but the doors were siezed in all of those pictures. (had to use the passenger's door to get in and push the drivers door open for fear of tearing off the door handle. had to do the same for the back doors.

armorall is crap. throw it away. I wouldnt put that crap anywhere near my interior.
This! Don't say we didn't warn you.

There are much better products that won't break the bank like Mothers, Meguiar's, Lexol, etc. without paying the super premium of something like Adam's or Griot's.
