Items needed for full service 5 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 3
Hi all

I've had my Rev 4 mr2 turbo for about 6 months now and I think it's about time I got my hands dirty and gave it a fairly comprehensive service. Now I have little experience mechanically so I am not going to do anything too challenging but I'm not paying a mechanic to rip me off just to change fluids! So I'm hoping the incredibly helpful members of this forum can advise me on a few things. The list below is what I intend to replace:

Brake fluid
Air filter
Oil filter
engine oil
Coolant
Gearbox fluid
Spark plugs/wires/Distributor cap
Brake pads
Windscreen wipers
Braided brake lines

Basically I'm looking to plunder the knowledge available on this forum to derive the best fluids/brake pads/spark plugs to use and if possible the cheapest place to pick up the needed materials. Any where around Dublin would be perfect but I have no problem ordering stuff online if it will save me some much needed cash! Also if anybody has any commonly worn/easily replaced items that I should add to my list please let me know. Am I safe in assuming that the above list can be completed on axle stands? If anyone has any advice for a novice trying to undertake the above list please throw your two cents in! Thanks again
