What should i do for maintenance with 252k? I do regular scheduled stuff. I've never flushed the transmission or differential fluids. My car runs fine. Any advice would help so I won't have to pay for any major expenses down the road. Please help. Thanks

In general - keep std maintenance intervals.
- Oil changes in 7k miles
- annual brake fluid flush
- coolant flush every two years
- cooling system (pump/thermostat/hose/reservoir) every 80 k miles
- change spark plugs, differentials and transfer case fluids every 100k miles
Transmission is one I am not sure what I would do - you need to be ready to have expenses down the road as I think you running on borrowed time for tranny anyways...
I would possibly ask mechanic to check fluid - its level, look, smell etc and decide what to do next.
