You might want to get the throttle body cleaned out too. Carbon deposits can build up in there, especially when it hasn't been cleaned for so many miles. If you've done it in the past 30-40K you should be ok. But definately get your timing checked and the belt replaced. New spark plug wires may be needed too, so check them. They gen 3 ones, usually last around 70k miles or so, is what I've heard. The newer ones can go even longer.

If you aint getting a "Check Engine error code", then you dont need to check your O2 sensors.

well no lights of any sort. no need to flush coolant just got new radator in like 2 months ago. Oil change is a yes. I was thinking of flushing my other fluids like brakes and power steering but dont really know how to go about that.

also how do you check timing.

to summarize everyone over.
______________
change fuel filter
change distribor cap
spark plug
change air filter
check fluids and flush
brakes ( will change )
battery ( no need brand new)
clean throttle body
timing belt checking ( clueless on how)
