Well that is how I always sell a timing belt job also. The water pump is driven by the timing belt and it is very labor intensive to replace. I always replace the water pump also because you have to remove the timing belt to replace. I have had people refuse the water pump, and have to spend the same labor dollars a few months later when the pump went out. Even if not leaking it is always good insurance to replace the pump with the timing belt but is not a must just good idea.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 sportage

could be a lead or plug breaking down which are the most obvious when under load ,but please explain why the transmission oil changed ?? i was always taught that auto boxes are for old women and the oil in them never needs changing .I have never seen this on any workshop manuals for the need to change the gearbox oil on a auto.

You change trans & power steering fluids every 3 years
You replace gas filter & air filter every 3 years
You replace belts every 5 or 6 years
You flush coolant every 3 years
You clean MAF Sensor once a year
You replace front oxygen sensors at 100,000 miles

Service on a 2003 fx35 with 120k miles


Well if you ask Infiniti, everything. From belts to flushing all the fluids and of course plugs and wires. Estimated at $1,000.00 for the works. I would flush the trans. oil and the anti freeze, as well as spark plugs. Also check the belts to make sure no visible cracks.

Recommended service at 60,000 miles??


Hello at 60,000 miles you should have all of the following done.
1) Have you transmission flushed completely
2) change your fuel filter
3) oil and filter change
4) inspect your brakes and rotate your tires
5) replace air filter if needed
6) clean your injectors by pressure
7) have your suspension check
8) have your belts inspected
9) if your differential is not leaking. leave it alone due to age.
10 have your coolant flushed out.

If you had any of the following done recently then subtract from the list.
this may be costly so you may want to do little by little unless you can have it done all at once.
