    Timing belt replacement on '03 - what else to do?

    If I'm having the timing belt replaced (it's almost that time), should I be asking them to replace anything else while they're in that part of the motor?

    Maybe the water pump....usually that's done at the same time since their right near each other.........but with a Caddy..I'm really not sure if it's the same way. I'd think it would be. Someone else will have to chime in...or you could just ask that...they'll tell you. But the water pump most likely

    i'd do the water pump, idler pulley, i'm not sure but maybe the tensioner pulley also, i'm not sure if you can just replace the bearings for the tensioner or not? . if they have to remove the intake manifold i'd get them to replace the thermostat too. might save you the hassle later.

    Don't forget the plugs.If you're at 100K miles. If you like DIY projects, you can do it your self, but it's a few hour job.
