Question 120,000 Scheduled Maintenance

I just got the mailed reminder from my local dealer that I need to be getting my 120,000 mile maintenance. What I was wondering was what said maintenance includes. Seeing as how if its minor things like an oil change and what not then I wouldn't mind doing the work myself. The car is a 98 2.5RS. Thanks.

I believe your car is the same as most other subies, so when you are looking in the engine bay it should be mounted to the drivers side strut tower. A little can with two tubes coming out the top. Changing it is simple. Open your gas door and unscrew your gas cap (people say this helps, I don't really know but do it anyways). Then you loosen the little clamps on the hoses and twist and pull and remove the hoses from the filter. There will be some fuel in the lines, so have a rag handy. Then undo the clamp holding the filter in place. Reverse the steps with the new filter (avail. either at the dealer or someplace like Napa) and you're done.

Be a pit patient on the restart.

Yeah, forgot the part about cooled engine. Good to know my explanation was basically the same as the one you posted, but not quite as thorough.

It means you need to bore out your block, stroke it, and port n polish your heads.
