Is "even for" used correct here? Im trying to say "what are the maintenances needed for anyway?" so can i use this sentence for it: "what are the maintenances even for?" or it s wrong usage? Thanks!

The second sentence would be correct, a more emphatic was to say "What are the maintenances for?" (to show that you don't think they're necessary). However, maintenance is usually uncountable, so unless you're talking about multiple maintenances over some period of time, it sounds a bit better to just say "maintenance" (What is the maintenance even for?).
