Question 100,000 mile maintenance

I'm comming up on 100K miles on my '03 civic ex manual transmission.. I've had a lot of people tell me different things that I should replace/update. So far the commonalities are:

1) Water pump
2) Timing belt
3) Spark plugs
4) Spark plug wires

Any other recommendations for parts that I should replace while my car will be in service up on jack? Thanks.

I'm going to the recommended 110k on my 05s belt,water pump and tensioner.

Plugs were done at 85k

Uses coil packs and has no plug wires.

Re: 100,000 mile maintenance

everything else is just done as needed but you might be due for trans fluid, coolant, brake fluid, air filter, cabin filter, etc.

Re: 100,000 mile maintenance

Do the filters yourself (save money and super easy!), get the coolant, tranny, and brake fluid flushed by dealership (will be expensive....) go to www.collegehillshonda.com and go to "honda parts catalog" on the left and you will enter your year and such and you can get all the replacement parts for cheap, just have the shop install them for you. That's what I do and it saves hella money in the end! For spark plugs, get NGK Iridium. For Spark plug wires go aftermarket because they will probably perform better and look better than stock
