Default 100K Tune Up Parts List

Hey Everyone,
So I'm about to hit 100K in my Maxima (07) - Completely Stock. I'm going to start buying the parts I need to do the big tune up. I just wanted to bounce my list off of you guys to see if there is anything I may be missing.

-Plugs
-Coils (Not sure if I'm gonna need them, but figure it would be a good time to replace them since I will have the access.
-Manifold Gasket
-Standard Oil Change stuff (oil and air filter, cabin filter, oil, etc.)

I had the belts chaged at 60K, and I changed the transmission fluid at 60K and 90K.

Coincidentally, my tires need to be replaced as well. I got 60K out of the stock tires, then had Eagle GT's installed. This time, I'm thinking about going with Continental's Extreme Contact. I drive over 60 miles (round trip) everyday to get to and from work. They seem to be a decent all season tire, and the reviews I have read about road noise, tread wear, etc. have been pretty good.

What about struts? When should they be replaced? (They'll have to be another weekend project).

That about covers it, what do you guys think?

Thanks for the input.

Justin

the structs should be replaced if it hasnt ever yet, and look for any torn boots or leaks of any kind (end links, CVs, leaking structs, etc). i know brake fluid is good for a very, very long time so no need to worry about that, power steering fluid ehhh maybe, flush out the coolant, check the condition of the motor mounts, the coilpacks on our cars are very good so you most likely wont need to change em, definitely change out the manifold gasket......thats all i got for now : - )

I think you have it covered. Make sure you just drain and fill the tranny fluid. Doing a flush has been known to cause issues.

Both times I changed the fluid myself, and it was just a drain and fill. What kind of issues has the flush been known to cause?

The flush has been known to break up and flush out particles and pieces (what its meant to do). But, your transmission has been shifting with those pieces in place. Now that they are gone it will cause issues.
I hope that made sense.

I'm a mechanic by trade and I always recommend servicing the transmission the correct way, which is to drop the pan, drain the fluid, replace the filter and gasket. When you use a power flusher to flush fluid thru your transmission could cause damage.

Every transmission generates a little wear which is collected in the pan, when power flushed, this wear can be forced into places where it can damage your transmission. In addition if your transmission has metal or clutch material in the pan (which in an indication of problems to come) you will not know this. We do have a power transmission flusher which we will use if a customer insists. How ever we do not recommend it.

Especially near 100K miles, I also recommend flushing power steering and brake fluid.. We recommend doing struts at 50K miles or if it shows signs of leaking or clunking noise but with clunking noise, it could also be stablizing links.. Just do a full multi-point inspection.. Good luck and hope this helps..
