I just hit 20K this weekend and was wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions on what I should miantaine, do for mods, or watch out for as my car getting more millage.

I still have stock spark plugs and have yet to change them out how long do they last and what one's should I go w/. Also, brakes how long typicly do they last for and what do you suggest. or any other normal maintiance stuff you guys can think of.[headbang]

And should I have changed the oil by now?

Check your manual noob! Nah, J/K Guy! I guess check all the fluids, Brakes may depend on how much you use them, you know? Plugs? I'm not sure, they are fairly cheap, so it prob wouldn't hurt anything to change them. I have Autolite XP 104's in mine.

Plus I can't read my manual b/c I can't read......I'm bolimic! And you say brakes "depending on how much I use them".....I use them every time I stop.....rite?

ok the plugs last about 50k, don't worry about them yet

BRAKES (note the spelling) shouldn't be up yet however replacing them with a nice set of ceramic pads will keep your wheels cleaner and will stop noticeably faster

its almost time for a fuel filter change (at 25k) make sure you don't forget about that one

if you're a manual, changing the tranny fluid with some Redline ATF (available from FS) sometime before 35k is a good idea as well

Get that fuel filter changed!! lol. I would flush the brake/slave fluid as well. I know the first time I did mine at around 25k the brake fluid was dark and the slave fluid was even darker. Nasty. Replace those plugs with some 104's and I would change the tranny fluid as well.

u can do all that stuff, but plugs, fluids should go 75 to 100k. i dont replace unless theres a problem. brake fluid i will do when i do them. tossing in some nice ceramic pads.

20k is still fairly new....spark plugs would be a good thing to do in near future but I wouldent stress about the car if its running properly.....maybe balance the wheels and tires
