Are spark plugs actually due by 57K? Did Nissan not use iridium plugs?

Most cars just have a lifetime filter in the fuel tank.
Take the wheels off and check the brakes, suspension joints and brake fluid level.

Brake and PS fluids. Spark plugs should be good.

Rust proofing. Spray with veg oil and/or motor oil/diesel costs next to nothing and may buy you quite a lot of time.

I called the dealership and they want it $55 for a qt of MTF, I am not buying that, it has to be 75w85 gear oil gl4, I cant find anywhere, I was thinking about using gm synchromesh or https://www.maperformance.com/products/m...8YaAlk2EALw_wcB

any other substitute that is cheaper ? how much do I need 2 qt ?

It really doesn't need it yet.

Spark plugs will still be fine.

I got a2014 Nissan Versa with a manual. 56,500 miles.

USE SYNTHETIC OIL and FRAM ULTRA OR MOBIL 1 filter. Believe me, these Nissan engines, exactly at 5,000 miles, they thin the oil out. So 5,000 mile OCIs or 4 months is a must.

I would change the transmission oil now.

Take a look at the owners manual / service and maintenance guide. Spark plugs are good for 105K miles per Nissan since they are iridium plugs. Changing now would be a waste.

If corrosion is an issue where the OP lives, I am sure there are oil spray shops they can visit. If not, the OP can travel somewhere to get it done.

I love the third world solutions you offer, they are often quite creative but often not the ideal solution for north america.

EDIT: On the topic of corrosion, clean out behind the wheels behind/under the fenderwell liner. Debris packed in there will rust your front fenders like crazy
