Default Anything else I really need to do?

Hello, I have a 2003 Pt Gt, has around 200,000 miles on it. Ive had it about 9 months.

So far i have replaced (All within last 3 months):
Timing belt and tensioner
Water pump
Spark Plugs and wires
Coil pack
Cam and Crank sensors
Serpentine Belt and tensioner
Front hubs and bearings
Front lower control arms and ball joints
Front breaks
Main radiator

I plan on getting a four wheel alignment next week, and hopefully new tires and rims eventually. I thought about front struts but the suspension isnt to bad just. When my timing belt broke I did a leak down test and it had nearly perfect results. Minimal loss whats so ever.

Anything else I should be worried about? Thanks

Have you changed transmission fluid?

Good time to change it. Especially if the history is unknown. YMMV.

Hello,

It was my understanding that if you aren't sure about the previous maintenance, it wasn't good to change the trans fluid. If it hasn't been changed at the proper intervals, the new fluid would cause more problems. Any thoughts?

I have heard this on occasion. Never had seen any thing to say one way or the other. My feeling is if it has an negative affect it was already on it's way out anyway. JMHO

Remove the spare tire lowering assembly and grease the lowering bolts threads
and while the tire is down check pressure and rim condition, never know when you might need it.
