Transmission - filters, fluid
Air system - Air Dryer filter, dump valves
Those are the ones I felt comfortable doing, the rest of the (long) list is going to be farmed out (if I can find a Freightliner shop with halfway decent reviews). Things like changing coolant & thermostats, serpentine belt, brake and suspension service & adjustment.
It's been an adventure.
Here is an idea...
when you have the filters changed, have the shop give you all the old ones.
that way you learn both the part numbers and (more importantly) how
many filters they really changed.
Not that I don't trust the shops, but that work is often given to the
youngest/least trained worker!
