as part of regular maintenance there is radiator/coolant flush and re fill..
brake fluid bleed and flush.
trans service...or in manual gear oil change, there is also diff oil change..

but things like these should be done probably every 1 to 2 years...

flushing your old coolant and replacing it with new stuff is a good idea for the coming summer
dont skim on costs either, get the best coolant

if you got the extra cash consider a full fuel system tune and injector clean, it's worth it, in my opinion, at least in the mid-long term value and life of the car

Check out the prices of exchange injectors ( Aznew ) from Repco before getting them cleaned...sometimes it's cheaper.
Also, changing the power steering fluid too...doesn't last forever.
