    Default '01 maintenance?

    my '01 burb just went over 100K. i want to know if there is any special procedures in changing the coolant.
    i'm assuming the '01 uses dexcool, heard bad things about dexcool. so should i keep using it or use
    the old green stuff.

    bleeding brakes any thing special here? isn't there something you have to do with ABS?
    brake pads?
    trans fluid?

    any write-ups on these maintenance's issues.

    thanks...

    I am also curious...

    Other than pads I am not aware of any brake service required at any mileage.
    I have a 03 Silverado 5.3 with 75,000 miles 2wd with towing package.
    I change the fuel/air/oil filter & the oil, grease it, check the trans, ps, brake and rear end fluid & brake pads...

    I was not planning on changing the coolant or the transmission fluid.

    Sorry for the partial hijack.

    you have to use dexcool I believe but I dont think you need to change it. When was the last time you serviced the trans?? if it hasnt been for a while or ever dont do it cuz it will end up ruining your trans
