It is recommended to change the engine air filter at the same time with oil change.

Check the level of the automatic transmission fluid as described in your car owner's manual.
Battery & Cables:
Check the battery and the its connectors while you change engine oil. Make sure the battery connectors are tight and there is no corrosion around the connections.

Exhaust/ muffler
Always listen to your car sounds especially your exhaust sounds. Any sound or unusual exhaust sound may mean a crack, damage or any broken supports. Drive your car to a  service center as soon as possible.

If you  are using an older car, the steering and suspension systems may need lubricating or greasing. Check your owner’s manual for lubricating spots on your vehicle. New cars normally do not require lubricating the chassis parts.
