For those of you who do your own oil & oil filter changes, are you also doing any lubrication with the grease gun? I've only just started doing my own maintenence on my vehicle, so I'm pretty new to this stuff.

What's the deal? Is this something that needs to be done when the oil is changed? Less often? Not at all?

The rule to follow is this:

4,000 miles per oil change unless you have synthetic which is twice that.
Every 30,000 flush transmission, brake, and coolant.
60,000 change cabin filter.

Brakes squeek when it needs replacement.
Transmission and oil changes color when needs replacement

All joints are sealed and you can't lube it without taking it apart.

Listen for weird noises or funny movement and trust your instincts.
