Found a 22k creampuff with all available options in Pure with black interior. Question for you all is I believe other than the oil being regularly changed, all other fluids are original. Any issues in changing all? coolant, trans and brake fluid etc...

thanks

I too would like to know the answer to this question....as I will changing fluids on my recently purchased 2007 GXP (a couple more miles, but not much, and fewer options than this one) Owner changed all fluids and has records of other service, but I didn't seem much in the way of radiator flush, rear diff, etc..

I'll have plenty of time to do stuff this weekend as I couldn't get a SoS appoint till Monday...

If doing them all yourself, the coolant is the hardest. You will certainly get a big air bubble that's a huge PITA to get out. There are instructions on DDMWorks website, and the use of an air lift tool will help. I did my thermostat 2 springs ago, and it took me 6 times with the air lift tool and a few drives and bleeds while warm to get the bubbles out.

I'll keep that in mind. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum nice find. I would probably change them all if they have never been changed. I change my coolant every 3 years. I do my fluid changes at the dealership since i do not have a place to do it were i live.

Echo the other's advice - change them all. You don't know what you have until you start anew.
