What do you guys recommend I use as new fluids on my S60R?

I want to replace transmission and differential fluid any suggestions on what to use?

Also what else should I do at 110k?


Cabin air filter, fuel filter, timing belt, water pump?


Thanks in advance :beer::):beer::thumbup::beer:

Spark plugs.

Might as well add the Angle gear fluid and Collar gear/sleeve inspection.

Hmm massive post around here about that. Thought I had it bookmarked, but I was wrong.

Unless your angle gear is leaking heavily and thereby needs a reseal I think its overkill to pull it and inspect the collar sleeve. I'd just change the fluid and leave it at that.

Agreed. Inspection, to me, just lends top a likely leak to form. Since I had my AG replaced under warranty at about 42000 miles, and they resealed it apparently very well (60, 000 miles ago), I'd rather not risk creating a bad seal. Not to mention that I do a ton of highway driving (95%). However, if you're in a lots of city driving, it might be worthwhile.

Guys, dont forget to get the radiator flushed, seems a lot of people forget that during maintenance... remember we have aluminum radiators, which corrode over time and break apart which damages our head gaskets and cause a lot more problems.

110K

1. Timing belt/idler pulley/tensioner if it hasn't already been done
2. Radiator and Brake fluid flush
3. spark plugs (coils too if budget allows, but its a preventative - when it fails, you'll know right away)
4. filters (pending on when you changed them)
5. angle gear & DEM / AOC fluid change
