What are you using the car for? Why do you think you should change the fluids?

Default I'll lend a hand here

As per the service manual:

Brake fluid - every 30k mi.
PS fluid - indefinate (inspect every 15k mi.)
Trans/Diff fluid - indefinate (inspect every 30k mi.)

As for me, I'm soon to change brake fluid to ATE Super Blue (along with Goodridge SS lines.) Using OE original PS fluid. Trans/Diff I'm using Royal Purple 75W90 full synthetic Max Gear Oil.

So far, so good. Hope to get to the brake upgrade in the next couple of weeks. That should make a marked improvement (might do pads as well, haven't decided.) The OE brake system isn't that bad, IMHO. Not for street use anyway.

HTH - Jim
