    30,000 mile check up

    I turned 30,000 miles the other day in my '02 WRX. I looked in the maintenance book to see what is done on a 30k check up. Most of the stuff I can do myself but there are a few thing that I am not to sure about.

    - Inspect Camshaft drive belt
    - I probably need a coolant system flush
    - Replace break fluid..... is this nessesary?
    - Check fuel system

    I am don't really want to take my car to the dealer. I have Turbo XS stg 4+, STI RA supension, willwood breaks. I have done oil changes ever 3k miles with Mobil1. The last year I have been hard on my car over and it probably needs some love. Do they even care about that stuff at the dealer? I would go to Irvine Subaru, are they mod friendly? What do you think?

    Irvine Subaru is very mod friendly.

    Did you not replace brake fluid when you got your Wilwoods? If you haven't, upgrade to a DOT 4 (Motul, Superblue).

    I did not replace, I just refilled what was lost. Can you tell them that you want a specific fluid? Or do you get what they give?

    I'm almost certain that Irvine (SPI Motorsports) would carry either Motul or Superblue. Definitely worth upgrading your brake fluid. It's a good idea to routinely flush the brake fluid as it readily picks up moisture and lowers its effective boiling point.

    I just want to be sure the dealer won't take one look at my engine and never want to touch my car again.

    you can do the service anywhere you want. as long as it's documented it's proof that it's been done if it's for warrantee purposes

    you can take it to a volkswagon dealer if you want

    or set up an appointment with subyspecialties in monrovia, ca. it's a subaru performance shop that just installs mods and has nothing to do with the dealership, ask for steve
