Fluid changes? That what I would do. I like to do all that stuff at once.

ALL fluids are current, CUV runs great :dancingpontiac: . Tune up, shocks and struts is what I would love to change. I want her running like NEW :drool:

No need to yet.

The LNJ is basically like the LA1. Comes with iridium plugs that are good for 90K-100K.

Change the fuel filter, run a good fuel injector cleaner, change/clean the air filter, oil change, and you're pretty much done.

Change the transmission filter, and refill with fresh trans fluid. (DexMerc) The DexCool, flush out if needed and refill.

Somebody doesn't know iridium plugs. They burn at a high temp, and with the coilpack delivering a high charge, that doesn't happen. I changed my OEM iridium plugs at 92K, they were worn, but zero excessive carbon buildup.

These aren't copper plugs, dude.
