I'm currently on an extended business trip, so I thought it might be the perfect time to have my '06 RRS SC'ed in for some basic maintenance. It's at about 73k miles, and just had its 60k service a few miles late around 65k (and obviously the oil changes since then). I shot an email over to a dealership near my office thinking I'd have one of the folks at my office deliver it for me. They recommend the 75k service for nearly $1k. I know, I know if you can't pay the maintenance then you don't belong in a RRS. It's not that at all, I just don't like feeling like I'm getting ripped off either. Hell, I just put a $2k clutch in my Z06 but I new it was necessary for the power it makes. I'm not sure I feel like a $1k service is necessary.

So I'm thinking about just doing the 75k service myself when I get home. I have access to a lift, air tools, etc. etc. So my question is are there any specialty tools required for anything listed below, and/or DIY guides for some of the funky stuff:

The only things I'm really questioning are:
  • Resetting the Service Indicator[/*:m:26k54ild]
  • Replace Anti-Roll Control Valve Filter[/*:m:26k54ild]
But are there any others that are particularly annoying on a RRS SC'ed? I've had my 'vette apart and back together more times than I care to think about, built a solid axle swapped 4Runner, LS1 swapped a FD RX7, and worked on everything from my old B2200 to a friend's F430 so I'm decent with a wrench. I just wanted to know if there are particular oddities to working on the RRS. Thanks!

PS- does anybody else think that for nearly $1k they could at least throw in brake and powersteering fluid flushes???

This is a long list of things to replace and check. I assume you'll need some software to diagnose and reset some of these items.

How much your time worth? If you like working with the ranch then working on the car should be fun but working on the car just to save $1k doesn't sound like much fun.

It's really not a long list of things that get replaced... a pretty long list of things that get inspected though. They only charge 2.4 hours of labor, so it's not a lot of actual work. What's my time worth? I don't know, but it's not like I get paid hourly and I'll be missing a day of work to do the work. I always find that a silly argument. I do enjoy working on cars with my buddies (I like wrench work, not a big fan of "ranch" work as you put it though ;) ) though so I consider it fun. That being said, I obviously don't have the proper diagnostic tool to reset the service indicator. Otherwise everything else looks straight-forward. I just asked about the anti-roll control valve filter specifically since that is very specific to the RRS and I personally haven't worked on one.

Sorry about the ranch :shock: - although working in a ranch might be more fun then working with the wrench :) - I hate when my smartphone guesses the next word - sometimes they are not that smart. In any case, the point wasn't literally about your hourly rate - as a businessman with busy lifestyle how much it worth to you to spend your free time working on the car. Since you enjoy doing so - i am sure it worth your time.

Cheers

Gotchya... I was just joking around about the 'ranch' thing. Yeah, I guess with business taking up so much of my time working on cars is still a bit of a release that reminds me of the 'good old days' when I "had" to fix my own cars. LoL.

I just wanted to know if there are any pitfalls in the 75k rundown.

Thanks,
TJ
