She graduates (college, not HS...) on the 14th, which oddly enough is our 1yr wedding anniversary. Going to start doing the usual repairs to get ready for that trip. Looks like i'm rolling over 105k sometime this weekend, I guess I should consider a timing belt shouldn't I? I took a peek in there last weekend and the tensioner looks good, no vibrations or belt slippage. I considered a water pump, how long are those lasting for you guys? Plugs and coils were done about 10k ago by the previous owner, got a record of that too
- tire balance/rotation
- full fluid change hopefully
- need to install that upper motor mount soon
- Serpentine belt with the t-belt
- I think the control arms and whatnot are probably alright, i'll give am a quick look during the tire rotation.
What am I forgetting? Looks like a 2200mi round trip including some mileage in Chicago. What spare parts can I grab to keep in my oh **** kit that I may need to replace mid-trip?
