Fuel injector cleaner: $5

TOTAL: $188.00
WHAT DEALER WOULD HAVE CHARGED: $1880.00 (probably)

I am by no means a mechanic but this stuff really isn't hard. Plenty of DIY instruction here; just spend an hour or so when you have the chance and learn a little.

And, please add Transfer Case fluid change to that list. I'll never let it go so long again. I think I'll change it annually from now on. It was so easy. It doesn't even really need to be on jack stands though that does make it easier.

Was your MAF very dirty? Could you tell a difference after cleaning? Do you use an oiled air filter or OEM?
