    I've got 30000 miles on my Tacoma & its nice that alot of people on this site have encouraged me to change my own fluids....but I'm not sure if I should attempt it. The dealership wants some $$ but I'm seeing that they are offering up some coupons for fluid changes. I do have lifetime oil changes. Since it looks like I have to do alittle at a time.....my question is what would be the most important fluid to change 1st if I needed to choose since $$ is beyond tight right now....& in what order should I do it.

    If your money are low, I would say change your own fluids they are very easy to do. (except auto tranny but that something you dont need to worry until you hit 60K)

    Engine oil
    Front Diff/reardiff
    Transfer case
    are the soon items the rest can wait


    Brake fluid after 5 years
    Power steering fluid after 5 years
