He meant valve cover gasket. I would also add oil filter housing gasket.

In order of priority:

Transfer case fluid
Spark plugs
Oil every 7500 miles

Differential (both) fluid
Transmission fluid.
Air and cabin filter (takes 5 min no tools required)

Third (assuming no leaks or cel);
Cooling system refresh
Valve cover and oil filter gasket
Fuel filter
Disa and hoses
Intake boot hose

Those last three will show up as CEL. Very common right now in 05 models.
