iRoarzer is on a distinguished road
Maintanence

Okay so this winter, when it gets a little bit colder, i'm going to do a full maintenance on my car.

What i have planned are:
Timing belt
New spark plugs
water pump
oil change/oil filter
probably fuel filter too

Thats all i can think of really...

Any recommendations? :D

CAR has 108xxx miles btw. No maintenance has been done besides oil.

Re: Maintanence

Best bet is to grab a copy of the owner's manual or shop manual -- there's a list in there. You've capture the must-do jobs: the timing, balancer shaft and accessory) belts, and the water pump. While you're doing the plugs, it's worth a new set of wires. And just a careful inspection of the car -- you're well into the window for coolant and heater hoses, brake pads and rotors, shocks, replacing the rubber boots on the ball joints and tie rods, CV boots...if it's made of rubber, check it. If not now, you'll be replacing all these things soon. Heavier stuff -- wheel bearings, CV joints, engine work -- just depends on how the car's running. 100k is just well-broken in for a Prelude, but it's still 100k. The good news is that the car will be ready for the same stretch afterwards.
