my doors have been making a creaking sound lately, im guessing its from old age, i was thinking about spraying in some wd-40 into the crevices of the door panels, am i making a mistake?

Is the creaking when you are driving or when you open/shut the door?

When you say spray into the crevices, do you mean the hinges, or between the body panel and the trim?

I always have this happen when its cold "40 or below" But when it warms up its gone. I use WD-40 on......... not the hinge,but....?????......the what ever you call it to keep the door from opening off of the hinge. Hope this helps/make since.

Try some WD40 or some grease, that should help and its not hard at all.

WD-40 isn't going to hurt anything.
I had a squeaky door on the Stealth years ago, and spraying the hinges didn't correct the problem. A careful examination showed the culprit was the bar/mechanism that held the door open. A bit of grease and all was quiet again. The point is 'don't give up' if you don't solve it with the first spritz.

I'll have to try that next time on my creaking knee joints

This could also be a first sign that the doors hanging alighnment is changing
