I was silent from Mylot for the most part of the morning because I had our car tuned-up. Its kilometer reading today was 138,348 kilometers, the total distance it traveled for 18 years and 2 months. I had the car's oil and oil filter changed yesterday and wanted to have the tune-up afterwards but my mechanic had many customers then so I set up an appointment for today. The car's radiator coolant is supposed to be replaced today but the mechanic said it's still good enough to be changed later at 140,000 kilometers. I bought a new air filter element as the current one has already been in use for over 18,000 kilometers and the Car User's Guide says it should be replaced every 20,000 kilometers. I also had the oil sender replaced because there was a slight leak. Now the car is fit again to run another 5,000 kilometers till the next tune-up. Do you have regular tune-ups for your car too?

@ridingbet So, in a year's time, how many kilometers do you travel? Do you keep an eye on the kilometer reading? Since we bought our car in 1998 I kept a record of tune-ups, when parts are replaced, kilometer reading when I fill up distance traveled, amount paid and average number of kilometers ran per liter. BTW, I won 2nd place for an Isuzu Car Owners' Photo Challenge held a few years ago :)
