    change your oil.....

    also change your gear lube + diff

    switch to synthetic oils ...but do so after some research first on what oil you should use.

    The dealership will also "check" a lot of stuff like brake pads, tires, filters, etc. If you ask me, going to a dealership and paying them $400 to "check" a bunch of items on a car is just giving them a license to find more stuff to replace so that they can charge you more to replace it.

    In addition to to what bluej20 said, you should check/change your air filter.
