Go by the Owners Manual or your gut feeling
remember, if you are a normal driver, don't go by the heavy duty use, like a taxi

i changed my transmission & rear end fluids at 42,000 miles, i went with Royal Purple fluids,
I also replaced my differential cover, so that the fluid can be checked or changed without pulling the cover
The Power Steering & Radiator fluids i changed at about 60,000 miles
when my brakes wear out, i will change the Brake Fluid

I have 80,000 plus miles on my Ram & i do a lot of long distance driving when doing a job
so i like to be ahead of the normal service times
