Jimny oil changes was created by Wailin
Have my jimny 2 weeks now and did an oil and filter change, flushed and changed coolant and changed brake discs and pads. I'm guessing that previous owner never bothered with diff, manual gearbox and transfer box oil changes. Would you recommend these should be done? If so are they easy enough to do and what oil should I use?
