    It will tell you in your service book on the pages before the stamps on what needs done when and at what mileage.

    According to the service book, oil, filter and pollen filter (as not changed for 2 yrs). I was wondering if there was anything not in the book, but ""recommended"", like when i changed the cam belt, i did the water pump as well. Not in the book, but the consensus is its a good idea.
