Coming up on 160000 mile service for 02 V6 Accord Coupe,

Any recommendations?

I lurk a lot on here and appreciate all the advice!

-Check/change all the fluids. Do a brake fluid flush and use a turkey baster to freshen up the often neglected PS fluid.
-Engine & cabin air filters
-Clean throttle body
-Spark plugs
-Run some Techron Concentrate Plus through the gas tank.
-Timing belt, drive belts, water pump, tensioners, oil seals
-Inspect/replace PCV valve
-Thoroughly inspect the tired suspension/steering system
-Look at motor mounts for cracks. My front mount developed light cracks around 165K miles and I've kept an eye on it since then.

Adding to mclasser's list:

Valve adjustments
Replace valve cover gasket (+spark plug seals and bolt gaskets)
Clean EGR valve and ports/change its gasket
(Clean throttle body mentioned)--change its gasket
Check for vacuum leaks
Replace transmission fluid (USE ONLY HONDA ATF DW1)
Replace power steering hose o-ring(s)
Replace coolant
Flush heater core
Replace thermostat
Replace radiator cap
Check ECT sensor
Check radiator efficiency or replace altogether if very old
Check heater control valve
Replace upper and lower coolant hoses
Check ALL coolant hoses
Check idle
Evaluate O2 sensor scanner readings
Check and clean all engine grounds
Clean and re-grease battery connections
Inspect engine mounts

Then reward yourself by having your car painted bright neon green.

!
Do you know if the car had any or all the previously scheduled maintenance done? If the 120k and 150K mile (120+30) service was done, nothing would be scheduled for 160k, but it would be unusual if everything is current. Just follow the owners manual recommendations.

Sorry, Tank. I was including a "once over" tune up on my list. You did state it's coming up on a "160,000 mile service", but not enough info of your car history--not sure how long you've had the car and what was done before as Nehonda stated. Details=better answers, I suppose.
