A lot of advised services are just income enhancements for mechanics. If you're not experiencing engine problems, don't do anything but proper, scheduled services. If you want to do an engine flush, which "might" be beneficial for a car with 175,000 miles on it, buy something like Seafoam and do it yourself: it's really easy. If you choose to do an engine flush, add Seafoam fuel cleaner, as well.
