Rear differential service is one many people pass on.  Do not overlook this.  The rear differential needs to stay lubricated.   Check your vehicle’s manual for how often this should be done.  Make sure your vehicle is being cooled properly.  You radiator can build up with plaque if not maintained, especially if you are driving in extreme conditions.  Transmission service should be done every 15 to 20 thousand miles.  Again, check the manual for your vehicles suggested service advice.  Items like air filters need to be changed or cleaned every other oil change.  You can save money by getting this yourself at your local auto parts store.  Do not ignore these recommendations.  They can be very costly repairs if left undone.
