200,000 Mile mark

I bought a 2003 Accord V6 EX just about a year ago with 184,000. I'm just about to 200,000 now and I was wondering what should I be doing for preventative maintenance. I have all the car's maintenance records; it got a timing belt / water pump done at about 100,000.

So I have about $1,000 to work with; I'm thinking about doing the timing belt water pump kit again, I've also got all new EBC brake pads and two new EBC rotors for the front that I'm going to be installing soon. What else is important right now? Spark plugs? Tranny fluid? Suspension?

Also where is a good place to get the timing belt water pump kit?

What are you guys using for engine oil? Do I really need to use the Honda Genuine? Just to play it safe I've been using Honda Genuine in combination with the Lucas Oil Stabilizer. I also use the Lucas Upper Cylinder stuff with every fill-up.

Thanks

tranny fluid for sure, timing belt, water pump, seals in that area, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor. possibly your power steering belt, a/c belt. fuel filter? check your air filter of course. brake pads just if they need to be replaced.

i bought all my parts for a major tune up from hondapartsunlimited

You should have posted this in the 7th gen section. Hopefully they move it. But you shouldn't use the lucas upper cylinder lube every fill up, you should use it every oil change.

There are no plug wires, distributor, rotor or fuel filter on this car. There is an A/C (cabin) filter though incase the OP didn't know. I use Mobil 1 oil, and if it hasn't been done the brake fluid should also be flushed every 3 years.

I'm at 154,000. No major repairs done. Oil pan gasket and crankshaft seal were leaking so I had them replaced. Using Mobil 1 High mileage oil now.
