    100k servicing?

    I have a 2000 Firebird Formula 6sp MT. Its getting close to the 100k mark. I was planning on changing the plugs and wires as those are still original. Is there any other fluids or parts I should consider changing? Does the coolant need to be changed, power steering, etc? I check my fluids all the time and all are at the proper levels. But when it comes to changing fluids, its only oil and the oil filter I change. I've done the fuel filter a while back. My brakes were changed recently as well as my tires and I have a new battery and starter. I always see ads for "100k servicing", but it sounds like for a hundred bucks they just check a bunch of things and will end up making recommendations. The car runs fine now, so is there anything I need to consider changing? Thanks!

    well if you've never done any other fluid changes, i'd do your rear and your tranny with synthetic fluid anyway, 100k or not. otherwise plugs 'n wires is all ya gotta do. might as well get a good filter while you're at it (if ya don't already)

    Coolant and flush, fuel filter, tranny fluid/filter, diff fluid with limited slip additive. Change your PCV valve and clean your MAF.

    Piss. Yeah definately need to do that. They are easy to take off. Literally takes minutes, and a toothbrush and carb cleaner works wonders.

    If you have to go really hardcore you could change the power steering and brake fluid. They do break down and absorb water.

    Dont forget the thermostat when you change the coolant. Also have the brake fluid flushed.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. Time for me to get to work! For the "tranny fluid/filter, diff fluid with limited slip additive", is that something I can do on my own? I'm pretty technical but I'm not hardcore. Thanks

    you should be able to do any fluid change yourself. get yourself a shop manual it'll tell you how to do everything, and how much fluid you'll need for each fill.

    Autozone.com is a good site for plug info/specs/fluid info etc. This can all be done with a set of jackstands and simple hand tools.

    All fluids/filters.
    Plugs and wires.
    Pour a bottle of Techron Fuel Injector cleaner in there.
