Default Hitting 150,000 maintenance time

hey guys im about to hit 150k miles and i was wondering what type of maintenance i should do to my 2000 2.5rs

i have a p0052 CEL but i dont know what to do about it

i just recently:
- reflashed my ecu
- changed my valve cover and spark plug gaskets
- changed spark plugs & spark plug wires (i still get misfire CELs though)
- changed my slave cylinder and bled the system (need to change my master but theres these two little screwes that i dont have the proper tools for)

i am planning on
- changing my oil
- changing my rear diff fluid
- flushing my coolant system (if it isnt too hard)

what else should i maintain with my car or what should i check with it? what type of bushing/parts should i change around the car as well?

thanks a lot

tranny fluid. there's a website out there for all recommended maintenance. tech.subaru.com or similar to it. mileage isn't a direct indicator of what you should do, how were those miles spent? You can always run some seafoam or BG44K thru it.

Follow standard 30k interval service items. Check your seat belts for fraying, etc. Some stuff will depend on the last time you did them. But I would replace nearly all fluids, Engine, Tranny, Diff, Brakes, Coolant.

My seatbelts are fraying.....Honda used to say that they (and most other manufacturers) have "unlimited mileage" warranties on seatbelts....they replaced the belt, retractor, and buckle on my '86 Honda with like 390K miles....for free!

Think Subaru does this?

Yes, they should if it's more than surface cosmetics.

I would recommend changing all your fluids as BOFslime mentioned. When you go to change your coolant it would be a good idea to change your hoses and thermostat. Also change the fuel filter and pcv valve if that hasn't been done in a while. All easy maintenance you can do yourself and its inexpensive.
