Default 30k tune up list?

can someone compile a thorough list needed to complete a 30k tune up? i did a search and came up with one list but while searching came up with other little things such as brass crush washers for the radiator when flushing the coolant. also what parts need to be picked up at the dealer if any. thanks.

What's this about? I didn't notice any washers on the plastic radiator drain spigot or on the radiator cap when I drained and refilled my radiator.

i read when you are flushing your coolant there is a brass crush washer that should be replaced.

You might be confusing the brass crush washer on the oil drain plug, which should be replaced after every oil drain.

i got my checklist from subaru.com in the owners tab. off the top of my head 30k is:

replace:
air filter
engine oil
oil filter
tranny oil
rear diff oil
pvc valve, i mean pcv valve
fuel filter
coolant (might just be an inspection, i forgot)

inspect:
brake lines, fluid, pads
clutch fluid
actually all fluids

rotate tires

only the oil drain plug has a gasket, don't remember anything on the tranny or diff plugs (i know the diff plugs have some sort of thread sealer on thema lready, not sure about the tranny plug). pvc you should use teflon tape. coolant there is no gasket, the drain plug at the bottom doesn't have anything but i used some teflon tape just in case. also unbolt the coolant overflow tank because junk usually accumulates at the bottom of that (the hose just comes right out, and then the two 10mm bolts).

Reading from my warranty book:

Inspect:

Drive Belts
Camshaft Drive Belt
Transmission / Diff. oil
ATF
Brake pads & rotors
Front & Rear Axle Boots & Axle Shaft Joint Portions
Brake lines
Clutch Operation
Parking & Service Brake Operation
Steering & Suspension
Cooling system hoses & connections
Fuel lines & Connections

Replace:
Engine Oil & Filter
Coolant
Air Cleaner Element
Spark plugs (non-turbo engines)
Brake Fluid
Fuel Filter
Rotate Tires

That's a brief once-through. Check your warranty manual for intervals for severe driving, cold weather etc. etc. etc. Interestingly enough, the PCV valve isn't mentioned. Seems funny, since it's such a cheap part.

I'm having my 30k service done today, and I'm also having an alignment done (and a clutch replacement if the dealer can duplicate the shudder problem). They (Burt Subaru in Littleton, CO) also recommended a dose of BG additives in the rear diff, trans, and oil. I remember good ol' BG 44K from my days of playing with aircooled VW's, so I let them go ahead with it.

Just curious,
I've done a few of the tune up stuff myself, how much does it usually cost to have some one do a FULL tune up on your car? like swapping fluids and fliters with new stuff.
