Here is my 100,000
Also made it to and past 100K. Presently 122K. Had the usual timing belt/water pump service along with new serpentine belt and tensioner pulley. Paid $950 for all at Chevrolet of Dover. (Delaware) A few repairs were paid out of pocket during this time. The Nox #2 failed along with EGT #2. Basically easy fixes. I did pay to replace the transmission cooling lines. They were weeping and not really "leaking". Transmission serviced twice by dealer using the correct Amsoil fluid. On second set of tires. My choice is the General Altimax RT43, "V" speed rated. They wear like iron and have terrific traction in all types of weather. We use General on all our vehicles. Other than that, everything else is routine maintenance and nothing else has failed. I change the oil when the reminder gets down to 5% and use Pennzoil Platinum Euro L synthetic with Wix filters. I also use Mann engine and cabin filters. Just my personal choice there. On to the next 100K!120 thousand.jpg

I'm nearing 100k. I was hoping to stretch out the time belt replacement to 125k and do the water pump and coolant exchange at that time.
For the guys who did their own belt, did it seem pretty worn out at 100k, or do you think it could be stretched out a little (time wise)?
Oreo is correct, a screen pic direct from the service manual is attached.
Belt, tensioner, idler, and water pump are all replaced at same during maintenance.
Additionally the 3 vertical bolts holding the engine mount to the bracket on the engine are one time use, torque to yield bolts which need to be replaced during service.Attachment 269335
