    people tend towards a synthetic mostly mobile 1. stock filters are great and they arent that bad from the dealer. every once in a while you find a 6 pack at a discounted price. do whatever you feel needs to be worked on while doing it, greasing things, tightening things and just doing a all around fluids check and inspection.

    oh and to add i think there might be a check list type sheet that kind of gives you a list of guidelines of things to check and change at certain mileage markers which could also be helpful. take a look at it before you get down and dirty making sure you got more things than you need for your little maintenance day and return what items you did not end up using.

    hope that helps :)
