    Just wanted to get your thoughts on the following maintenance items. I have
    a 97 Prelude with 64,000 km and the recommended interval for the
    following is 84months/168,000 km

    Replace Spark Plugs
    Replace Timing Belt
    Replace Timing Balancer Belt
    Replace Water Pump

    If it was your car, would you have the work done?

    It would depend a lot if you're in Alaska or Panama. Without knowing
    what conditions the vehicle has been used in, some things are mandatory,
    some are discretionary. Some are probably missing too.....

    Tell us more. Reply to group.

    Thanks Curly. I'm in Ottawa, ON - hot summers, cold winters. I'm getting the
    t-belt, balancer belt and water pump done - $525 CA at the dealer. I
    figure pocket change compared to having the belt go.

  4. You have chosen wisely, Grasshopper. You might consider checking the
    PCV, or just get it changed. A bad PCV can screw up your fuel mileage or
    put your oil consumption thru the cieling.

    Your manual will confirm the interval for service.

    Thanks, I do the PCV valve myself once per year.
