Default 100,000 mile service

what is exactly included?
recommendadions on fluids to use?

i'm at 89,000 miles right now, but after the next few weeks i'd like to do the 100k service my self. i know its early, but it cant hurt anything to get a head start.
i've "heard" that Subaru charges around $900 for the service.....ouch.

Have you changed your timing belt already? That would be a big part of the cost, and its not recommended you attempt that without the right tools/experience.

There is no 100k service. Major service intervals are every 30k so you are almost at the 90k interval. The timing belt is 105k and the accessory belts and spark plugs around the same (not sure about your model; check mysubaru.com )

I would wait. Really, you don't want to throw off you maintenance schedule, you might forget or lose records later on, and then you won't know when you did something. But to replace the timing belt/waterpump/tensioners ect you are looking at around $600 just in parts. Then your transmission fluid and filter (use subaru filter) if you have an automatic, and your fuel filter (subaru/wix/purolator). At 90k, you should replace your spark plugs and if you have a 5sp, your gear oil with subaru extra s. That's really all I can think of, check the maintenance subforum for more details

$100 for timing belt, $120 for tensioner, $150 for all idlers and $60 for water pump

JSC sells the entire thing in one package for about $450, or you can collect the individual parts from here or there for closer to $400. $600 is way too high though.

thanks for the direction so far!
im planning on replacing spark plugs, flushing all fluids (maybe using Motul 5MT fluid? Redline), a friend will help with the timing belt (hes got the right tools).
i was not aware that the maintenance interval was every 30k miles.

Did you just buy the car? Look in the service manual or mysubaru.com

Like others have said, read the manual for the intervals. If you have questions/doubts, pick up the phone and call your service dept. They will have the exact answers you are looking for..
