    Fluid Change

    I own an '02 WRX Manual Trans with 160k +

    I've had my car a few months now and unfortunately I've been too broke to do much of anything to it. The only fluid I've changed yet is the initial oil change I did after I got it. (Well and I added some washer fluid ) But I'm looking into doing a complete fluid change asap, just for maintenance sake, since I don't have much history on the car. I intend to do more research into the subject but any suggestions/tips/advice would be much appreciated!!

    I'm trying to figure out what all I need to bother changing, what brands to consider using & price ranges for each. Thank you for your assistance oh great knowledgeable subaru owners!

    Subaru Extra-S for transmission
    Subaru Extra-S for rear differential

    I pay ~$35/gallon at my dealership; many, however, won't sell it in containers less than 20L (~$160).

    ATE SuperBlue for brakes - ~$15/L

    You can also use any quality 75w90 GL-5 synthetic for the transmission/diff fluid. Mobil-1 or Valvoline are easy to find and work well. Nothing wrong with the Extra-S though.

    You can also order Subaru extra-S by the quart, it's much easier to dispense that way...Subaru 75W90 Extra-S Gear & Transmission Fluid
    Also agree with the ATE blue brake fluid.
    Subaru Coolant and cooling system conditioner would be a good thing to look into as well
