I have a 2016 Z sport Automatic with 27,111 miles
Purchased July 2015 brand new, I’ve only done regular Oil Changes that’s all
In 4 plus years of ownership
My question is what services to do next/recommendations from the Z community
What’s service is priority? Or do all at the same time.
From what I’ve researched i should be thinking of the
Following:
-Transmission drain refill
-Differential service
-Coolant service
-brake fluid
-Power steering fluid
Thank you!

JerryDeluxe,

If you like to drive it hard on occasion, I recommend changing out the diff fluid at this time - it's super easy.

AT transmision fluid isn't that difficult but it has specific steps that incompetent shops can easily screw up (dealers included). For normal street driving it should be fine for 100K miles. For harder street driving I might go 50-60K mile interval. For track use, it may need it much more frequently depending on your driving style.

Coolant is probably fine. The fluid is rated for 100K miles and I'm sure many street cars have run it longer. Consider shorter intervals per driving style similar to the AT fluid.

Power steering fluid is probably fine. Just keep an eye on the color (usually red) and change it if it starts to get dark/dirty. Easiest way to change it is the "ranger method".

Brake fluid should be changed more frequently. Keep an eye on the reservoir under the hood and change it when the yellow/amber color starts to darken or you see dirt in the reservoir. I flush mine at least once a year if not more frequently.

Ok Start with brake fluid Change
Next Differential is a must.
Might do power steering change only if I get discount this time
if not till next time...
Coolant just check
And transmission Change might wait till like 45k
Thanks JARblue

Question do the SPL Front camber arms have a history of making noise?
At a Stop when I turn steering wheel at any direction I get a metal pop
At high speeds nothing.

Did you ever get this fixed? I coincidentally am also getting a pop from the drivers side after having SPL Front Upper Control Arms installed.
