I only change oil, wiper blades, light bulbs, battery, coolant, spark plugs, air filter and wash/wax the car. However, that covers quite a bit, much of routine maintenance. I can also check the brake pad thickness so I know when to have it changed it.

Do all the repairs that don't need me to use a car lift, like one in the repair shops, for my wife's and my car.
