I service my own vehicles. I keep a log book that reads like this:
Under ISSUE, if it is just regular maintenance, I name the service (oil change, etc.). If it is a repair, I describe the problem in a phrase or two.
Under WORK, I will list everything done -- i.e. replaced timing belt, water pump, etc.
Under COMMENTS/NOTES, I list any difficulty or deviation from normal. For example, taken from the previous owner of one of my Esprits, a shim of a specified thickness was needed to align the tensioner.
