75,000 mile maintanence questions

Hey wussup guys,
I got a 01 5th gen that just recently hit 75,000 miles. I try my best to keep you looking and running nicely with regular check-ups and fluid changes. ive had it for a lil over a year and probably put the last 10,000 miles on it and i know that 75,000 is a pretty important mile stone in a vechiles components so what reccomendations would yall make for me to handle and this point? Im thinking new, plugs, wires, tranny fluid, and flush the radiatior, ect..

Re: 75,000 mile maintanence questions

your about at the milestone to start thinking about a complete

timing belt change

timing belt
water pump
tensioners (timing and balance shaft)
balance shaft belt
seals (cams, front main)

Might take a look at the clutch

clutch kit
resurface flywheel
rear main seal
check the slave cylinder
may want to upgrade the line to stainless steel.

Brakes

pads
rotors

Plus everything you mentioned as well

I might have missed something I guess others will chime in if I did.

Re: 75,000 mile maintanence questions

The OEM timing belt can't be beat. Same goes for the OEM water pump, belts, and seals. When you're changing the timing belt, some would recommend doing the auto>manual tensioner swap (from the H23), as the H22 auto-tensioners are known to fail. Clutch wise, I would say Exedy is good (they made the OEM clutch after all), Fidanza flywheels (if you want a lighter one). As far as brakes go, upgrading never hurt, and they're not that expensive. It's pretty much all preference for brakes.

Re: 75,000 mile maintanence questions

The H-series OEM clutches (from what I have seen) can last upwards of 175k+ miles. I'm at 137k right now with my OEM clutch and it just recently started to slip. You can probably wait a little while to do the clutch, but if you have the money, go for it.
