Yes, same for the 2.3. If the maintenance calls for only once every 100k, I'd imagine the fluid would be in sorry condition once actually changed.

Of course, the harder you beat on your car, the sooner your fluids should be changed anyway. I'd be hard pressed to push any fluids further than 50K miles, unless it's the power steering. It's up to you, really. Some people like to change out their fluids more often and others have no problem running their oil dry.
