more or less what has already been said, glow plugs are a "change when
broken" item, not like spark plugs which are generally a "change after X
kms" item. the glow-plugs on my old landcruiser where probably 25 years old
and still kicking. you can check them by pulling it out and checking it's
resistance. should be of the order of a couple of ohms i believe.
power-steering fluid, probably a once every 20,00 ks or 2 years or
