Default 125K Miles.. getting timing belt changed this weekend - what else??

I bought the car at 93K miles and the owner (a friend of mine) isn't sure if she had it done.

now it has 125K miles.

I have already gotten new spark plugs and wires.

Getting timing belt and water filter replaced this weekend.

what else do i need to worry about?

What is normally done at 90-120K miles?


Also , how much should the parts cost me for the timing belt / tensioner / water filter? (just parts)


THanks !!

What people are saying to do at the time the timing belt is replaced is to also get:

Water Pump, Tensioner (make sure you get the 2003+ upgraded tensioner), Drive belts (I believe there's two) and someone suggested replacing the oil pump since it also has high mileage on it and it's easy to get to when you do the rest.

As for prices, I don't have a clue. I'm looking around now for the best deal since I'm at 93K.

I had mine replaced at 110 miles for $475 dollars, new belt(1) water pump and tensioner. I priced the work at the dealer and they were well over $800, so I went looking at other smaller garages. Found a shop that had done other PT belts and figured they knew what they were doing. So far, so good, now almost 129,000 miles. I might have to replace the rear orignal brakes soon.
