60k service parts list

Threads with great technical info will be moved here. Don't post new threads in here.
Forum rules
This forum is strictly for technical info concerning the 3/S platform. A mod will move threads to this forum that we think contain great technical info. This should cut down on the need to search for that good thread out there. Hopefully it lands here instead.

Please don't start a new thread in this forum. If you want to reply to a thread in this forum, that is o.k. Just make sure you are adding solid information to the topic of that thread.

Also, if you are searching for good technical info, there are a couple of great websites out there that are easily search-able:

Stealth316.com: http://stealth316.com/0-frames.htm
and
3SI WiKi: http://www.3si.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

Both those websites have search boxes. They have helped me countless times. And you'll notice that a lot of the threads in "The Good Stuff" forum are going to have links to these websites.

Not really. You don't have to do anything until you have a problem with it, and that goes for cars as a whole. You don't have to put gas in it, but if you don't it will inconvenience you at some point in time. :lol: Things like plugs/plug wires are easy to say that about. It would be a preventive maintenance thing, but not nearly as critical as a t-belt change.

At a minimum, since you are in there....replace the timing belt, tensioner and water pump(pulleys at 120K if money is tight). I've seen many water pumps fail shortly after a timing belt change. It is a game that the dealers play. They will not replace a water pump unless asked(Our definition of a 60K is not the same as theirs.) This results in the timing belt labor again to replace it 2mos later. Always be clear about what you want.

The crank pulley itself is known to come appart after 10 years or 120K. This part is also known as the Harmonic Balancer.

It's a good idea to at least inspect it for signs that it's starting to come appart while you've got the wheel-well covers off. Granted, it probably won't destroy your motor when it does eventually come appart, but usually it takes out the crank angle sensor wire and grooves the t-belt cover pretty badly.

Just wanted to add some more info to this thread. I'll be doing another 60k on Stacy's car and I'm getting my plugs and wires from the dealer this time around. Here are those part numbers:

MS851336 - spark plugs (NGKs PFR6J-11)
MD193980 - plug wire set
MD143791 - Plenum gasket

Also, the prices that are posted near the top have gone up slightly. For whatever reason, the water pump really jumped. Its now $121 with our 20% off.

later,
Curt
