I recently purchased a new to me '96 Jetta GL. 8V, 5 speed. So far so good. There are some new noises coming out from under the hood. Some noisy belts on cold starts, and some minor tapping. And the steering seems pretty stiff. It's tight, I like that, but it also seems that it's not getting much help from the power steering, assuming that I have power steering, I'm not sure honestly.
So, my question is, what does everyone recommend that I should do for prevetative maintenance? The car doesn't get driven hard, it's my wife's car, but I want to make it as reliable as possible. I just checked the oil, looked fine. No leaks. It's got 122K miles. Thanks.
