What to do around 100,000 miles?

ok, i'll have lowering springs, new front and rear bumpers (GT bumper in the back), Dual flowmaster exhaust, cai, fog lights, and probably 2 10's in the trunk by the end of winter. My question is, since my car is in the 100,000 range (108,000) what types of things should i be looking to do then to keep it running for years and years to come. Also, at about what point do you think my motor would quit on me? and should i maybe look into getting a new motor, maybe a better v6 engine?



Mods
Cold Air Intake, True Dual Flowmaster Exhaust

1/8 = 10.78
1/4 = 16.47

well i would change all fluids...tranny gear motor everything....spark plugs maybe some plug wires....i would take it to a shop and get them to do a induction service....and your motor will run good as long as you take care of it..

100k is nowhere near the time to look into a new motor just go with a complete tune-up from front to back not just the basic plugs and wires and youll be good

ok, so there's no reason to really need to replace the motor then? and if so when? and would it be more worth it just to get a new one now?

100,000 changes or look intos


02sensors
spark plugs wires
spark plugs
oil change
air filter
time chain checks
belt checks
belt tension check
fuel filter
clutch
tranny fluid
radiator fluid
gear fluid
and if you wnat check out other sensors.

also oil pump screen and oil pump check i'd do as well
the screen is a bitch since you have to lift the engine, and remove the oil pan to check it.


do not go to a mechanic unless they are trustworthy
most places like, tire plus, jiffy lube, all those half ass places do NOT replace with quality items and will not check everything ive listed and will do more like just regular tune up changes
