Not sure what the manual says to do, but from what I've read on here, it is recommended to change the timing belt between every 60K - 80K miles. I hope at 116K, that was the second time the belt has been changed.

Typically (again, from what I've read on here) when changing the timing belt, you should also change the other belts, water pump, timing belt tensioner....and there may be something else, but that's the major stuff that I remember.

It would probably be good to change the transmission fluid too. I've got 125K on my car now and that's the next thing on my list of stuff to do.

spark pluggs, air filter, pollen or cabin filter, drain the brake fluidand coolant, and obviously put some new one in, motor and engine oil change....and they check the differential fluid if it needs to be changed it will be done....

this is what RUSNAK told me 10 mins ago...

Why not spend 70 bux on a water pump to have the piece of mind that it WILL last.... There is no reason the bearing on the pump wont go out between 2 belt changes because it gets an awful lot of heat soak.
