    Our cars don't have plug wires..


    Someone should have a 60k rundown somewhere, I'm too lazy to look right now. I know it includes flushing nearly every fluid, and changing the spark plugs.

    Just google the factory recommended maintenance schedule, it shouldn't be hard to find a run down of what all is included.

    rear differential fluid replacement
    transmission fluid replacement(manual or auto)

    Some services may not be due depending on what work you've done on the car recently, of course.

    They recommend inspecting, but replace the transmission / rear diff fluid. It's not that expensive, and worth your time.

    Changing spark plugs and flushing liquids is one thing, but changing the transmission now that I don't know how to even begin doing.
