Well i just noticed in the manuel it says only to replace every 2 years. I just bought 2 bottles of the 80w90 fluid to do it but not sure if i should wait or what?

If you are talking about just changing the fluid i say to do it. unless you are never in the water.

I did mine as part of the first service and was amazed at how simple it was. took me no time at all and the oil isnt that expensive to worry about.

cheap insurance

With all the water your in, you should change it. Its cheap, I do it at every oil change.

Yes, just under two bottles total. If buy the big bottles of automobile gear oil it will only take one, unless you have to "flush" junk/water out. Which I bet you will.
