View Full Version : My 60k Service

I'm coming up 60k miles and from searching around, these are the following things I want to do...

-Timing Belt(?)
-Change spark plugs to NGK BKR7E's
-Seafoam entire car
-Change oil & filter
-Drain Coolant & refill
-Change fuel filter

The question is....is there anything I'm missing here? Additional recommendations? Do I have to do these things in a specific order?

I want to make sure everything is covered before I start [wrench]

Change Timing Belt
while bumper is off it will be easy to put in an aftermarket snub mount (if you don't have one already)
Be prepared to replace vac lines when the bumper is off - one runs from the 710N to under the manifold - easy to do with bumper off. Replace other vac lines and check valves.
Replace 710N while bumper is off
Change coolant sensor at same time as timing belt
Change motor mounts while it is opened up - will be a bit easier. Look at S4 mounts.
Put in a new coolant reservoir - it will make the engine bay look much better (like $12 or $22?)

Other stuff -
Replace brake fluid
Replace differential fluid
Replace transmission mounts
Clean Throttle body
Clean MAF / replace air filter
Replace fuel filter
Replace oil jet suction pump if it has not been replaced yet
Seafoam, then replace oil, then replace plugs

that should do it - have fun.
