I just recently passed the 100K mile mark on my 94 854T and I was wondering if there were any items that needed specific attention. The car is running great and I would like to keep it that way. I'm definitely a strong believer in PM. <BR>Thanks in advance.<P>Scott K

If you haven't gotten your tranny fluid flushed and replaced (supposed to be due at 70K i think) that is a highly recommended piece of maintenence.<BR>I think the 94 requires a timing belt change at 60K and 110K miles along with the serpentine belt.<BR>You may want to concider a coolant flush as well depending on when the last one was done.<BR>Brake fluid flush is CHEAP and always good maintenence, along with checking your rotors, pads, lines all that jazz.<P>

Whatever you do, don't go to the dealership. I spent $200 and all they did was change my oil and check about 15 things I could check with my pet monkey (no I don't have a pet monkey <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">) Just go over the couple things David suggested and you should be good to go...of course, definitely find out when that timing belt is supposed to be replaced for your car...<P>

So there's nothing specific to look right now... I do a lot of the work myself and I almost always steer clear of the "stealer." I guess I'll probably do a fluid flush all around. Does anyone know about how long Mobil1 trans oil lasts? It's been over 20K miles since I last flushed the trans but the car is still shifting as quick and smooth as day one of the flush. <BR>Thanks again in advance.<P>Scott K
