I'm doing a Service 2 on my car this week. I changed tranny oil, power steering fluid, plugs. I'm going to wait until spring to do brakes as I won't be driving it much during the winter.
The plugs that were in it were Bosch with three ground electrodes. Were these original? Every one was loose, just more than hand tightened. I put in NGK BKR6E11s. It runs much better and has much more power. I'm sure consumption has dropped but will have to wait until the next $50 tank of gas.
Tranny shifts a bit better, but I'm still going to look into new shifter bushings.
The manuals say you don't need to change the power steering fluid but it was dirty as hell, almost black. I figured it wouldn't hurt to pump out the old stuff in the reservoir and replace it with new ATF.
Still deciding if I'm going to change coolant and diff oil. Engine oil will be Shell 5W-40 sythetic as soon as the filters come in. $27 for five filters off ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWN:IT
The parking brakes rattle over bumps, I'll fix that when I do the rest of the brakes.
I've had the car for six months now and it's been great. Might do some upgrades this winter when I have more time.
