Start again with the maintenance schedule. If the transmission has not been serviced recently I would service the transmission and chance the oil every 30k from now on. I would change the engine oil every 3000 miles and brake fluid every two years. I keep my cars for 200 to 300K miles.

I don't have the manuals in front of me and we are not in the same location what did you mean by "start again with the maint schedule?" Thanks for your response Rob
