    100,00 mile mark

    Im coming up on 100K miles.. I have an extended warranty is the 100K maintenance covered? What should I expect to pay if it's not? What exactly am I in store for?
    I'm afraid I'll take my smooth running, white diamond princess to the dealer and get a raped pos back! I just bought it with 86K on it in May this year. No problems, no codes, no knocking, bumping, thumping or foreign noises of any kind.

    I don't know what warranty you have, but typically extended warranties, or even original factory warranties do not cover scheduled maintenance, or wear components. What needs done should also be listed in your manual. You can compare this to what the dealer recommends or ask an independent shop.

    100k maintenance will definitely NOT be covered by an extended warranty, or any warranty for that matter. Warranties are for break/fix not maintenance items.

    Word of advice. Have your engine mounts and trans mount checked. If they are worn, replace them as it will save you trouble with your drive shaft later down the road.

    Re: 100,00 mile mark

    IMHO it's time for the following:

    * Engine coolant flush
    * I highly recommend a radiator replacement as well if you have not replaced it or have not done anything to protect from tans line connection or coolant trans fluid mixing failures.
    * Transmission fluid and filter change (NO FLUSH!).
    * Differential fluid change
    * Change all spark plugs (requires intake manifold removal for proper service)
    * Power steering fluid and filter change
    * Water pump, water pump gasket change
    * Serpentine belts replacement both of them (it's a good time to check your pulley's as well make sure none of them needs replacement before you put the belts back on)
    * Change cabin air filter if you haven't already
    * Now is a good time to examine your suspension bushings, springs and struts / shocks make sure nothing is damaged, deteriorated, leaking oil, missing coils, making squeaks creaks....etc fix and replace as needed.
    * Examine all interior and exterior insulating strips weather strips for deterioration service as needed.

    That's all I can remember from what I did but it is most of what is a good idea to check / fix at that mileage.
    Doing all of this at a dealership or a shop will cost $$$ as you can imagine lots of it, it's best to see if you can do most yourself then leave the big stuff for the dealer / hop
