I always thought it noted all of that in the back of the owner's manual...

If you don't have a manual (just responding to your PM), then you should say so right away because otherwise it's understandable why we responded the way we did.

At 30k you need to:
Tranny Fluid
Rear diff fluid
Coolant
Oil and filter
Air filter
PCV Valve
Fuel Filter

and some other miscellaneous things. I'd really recommend going to the dealership and find out exactly what you need. Other than that, if you have 2 working hands, do NOT have the dealer do it. It costs $250+, all of which you can do yourself for about $100.

Clutch fluid isn't necessary and not in the manual, but can't hurt to do it.

www.subaru.com has the BEST advice. It's the LATEST info on what needs to be done and it's advice trumps that of your manual.

Don't try to do the PCV valve. It's non-serviceable on the '04 WRX. Whatever you do, don't try to get it out of the plastic T fitting, it's not threaded. Almost like I know this from experience...

I think you just replace the whole thing, including the plastic part. There was a thread about this within the last month.
