Please recommend where to change all fluids and filters in TriCities/coquitlam

So I finally bought my first car , 350z
And I want to start from scratch by changing all the fluids and filters.
Can someone please suggest me a shop to do all this in coquitlam? Ive been thinking to go Morley coquitlam but I heard they charge quite a bit.

P.s. i also need to change my brake pad!

Does it have to be in Coquitlam? Try one of the sponsors. Rise, TSS, etc...

If u can goto burnaby, I recommend The Speed Syndicate. They're prolly the closest sponsor to you that can handle your required work. Don't forget to book ahead.

Monkey Nutz. Close enough to coquitlam and they specialize in Z-Cars and Nissan/Infiniti.

Do it yourself, and learn something in the process. Fluids, filters, brake pads...all easy to do in a single weekend.

Youtube.

Save yourself a lot of money and do it yourself. That way you know exactly what's going into your car and you'll have piece of mind it's done properly.

Or this.

On your car there is actually a drain plug for the tranny fluid. Only drains whats in the pan, that means about 5 qts of the 12 in there come out, which is a good way of changing that fluid without shocking your transmission.

Just do it twice like that along with your next two oil changes and you are good to go.

For the spark plugs, they are easy to change, just might be difficult to reach the far back ones, but its manageable.

The rear differential is easy, take off your filler plug, drain fluid through the bottom plug of the housing, and fill with almost 2 qts of fluid.

Oil change is self explanatory.

The only other thing I can think of is coolant, which is meh, doubt you need to change that yet, but you didn't say the km's on your car or the year.

Be thankful you don't have a front differential, and transfer case to change the oil on as well like I do. Pain in the ass.

Racing Greed is in Poco. I don't think they'd say no to a simple maintenance job.
