Most intervals are negligent..... marketing extended intervals lowers the cost of ownership and reduces the hassle of service appointments...
All fluids/filters need changing. All machinery needs maintenance. Do what you want and when you want.
Oil, oil filter, ATF, ATF filter, coolant, brake fluid, differential, transfer case, engine air filter.... need maintenance whether the automaker states it or not, or claims its lifetime or overly extended
I change my gear oils every 30k.
I drain/refill my ATF every year and change the ATF filter every 100k.
I bleed my brakes every 2-3 years or every 24k-30k miles, and at every brake service.
I drain/refill my antifreeze every 4-5 years or 50k completely(radiator/block/bottle), or a simply 1/2 drain/refill(radiator only) every 2-3 years or 30k miles. Thermostat is changed at 5-7 years, and serpentine belt every 5/60.
So many trolls so little time
