I'm actually surprised there hasn't been more comments on this post!! So 1 of 3 things is happening here.
1. Everyone adheres to this already and has had all their fluids changed - Highly unlikely!!! Especially since just last year we had guys that had 3 or 4k on their car asking if they should do their first oil change!!! LMAO
2. Nobody really cares to follow the recommendations of the book - Highly likely...see the comment on line 1
3. Nobody really wants to talk about it because it costs money.....
I meant to put more into the post initially but the boss came walking by and gave me more work!! So, after the battery, check your brakes as well. If you have the original pads, they might be old and brittle and have chunks missing. Check your serpentine belt for cracks. Check your exhaust, especially if the car sits outside or is stored in a garage/barn with a dirt floor. While you're checking your exhaust, check for any fluid leaks. Those of you that have '07 GXPs, and have over 70k, it might be time to think about a timing chain replacement. IMSMC the early '07s were built with inferior guides that wear prematurely or fail.
And this is personal preference, but I would either change oil right before storage or right after getting it out. Not something that has to be done, but I recommend it. I used to change it on my Mustang the day of storage and the day I got it out of storage. And I never had an issue with it....I had over 160k on it and never had a major engine issue...not even a waterpump!
