How often do you change fluids?

Recommended Posts

So, the factory manual says that engine oil & filter should be changed every 3,000 miles, and transmission & diff fluids every 6,000 miles. Thought it might be interesting to see if everyone is following that religiously, or adopting their own fluid change routines.

If you're feeling particularly inclusive, then throw in coolant change intervals too :)

Oil 5000 or 2 years

Nothing else unless I'm working on that system,  or it's running low.  this includes coolant,  brake fluid, screen wash,  power steering,  hub grease.

These figures are actual rather than intended. The intended figures are strangely similar to the manual 😁
