Question 90K miles fast approaching

what needs to be serviced and replaced?

I know for sure
-oil/filter
-spark plugs and ignition wires
-air filter

I'll do the fuel filter also since i didn't do it @ 60k and tighten and lube the front wheel bearing...there is some play right now

just recently (last 2 months) did a 4 wheel alignment, coolant flush

mech said flex disc is fine, bushings were fine, no leaks, no nothing :-)

-Ren

PS I tried to search but didn't find anything

service

Hi,

Not sure how comprehensive the look was by your mechanic. I would think it's getting to be time for front end work, 100,000 seems to be magic number. Ball joints, struts, tie rod assemblies, etc.

However, I would not fix what's not broke.

As you mentioned all filters, plugs, wires, rotor, cap, hoses, belt. Typical high ware items.

Good luck,
Joel

I just noticed you have a 1994 E320.

You also have a dust / pollen filter for your a/c that needs to be replaced, too.
