Completely agree with j_del, even if it started to slip changing the fluid/filter with a qt. of stopslip will usually bring them back to life, if it ever does start to slip make sure you take care of it right away otherwise you will destroy the bands and then you will be shoping for a tranny, if you ever need any parts for your car my email is and i can get them for you used and much discounted, take care and good luck

There's no need to assume that it has to be replaced. Does it shift well? Does it slip? If not, no worries. Many transmissions will outlast other parts of the car as long as they're not abused. That being said, a transmission fluid flush and refill and a change of the transmission filter is not a bad idea, but don't automatically expect that it's going to die - replacing it could well be a waste of money.

I'm wanting to know the longevity of a Chevy 5.7L

If you are only at 184,000 miles, it all depends on how much and how you drive this van. If you keep up on your routine maintance, drive it respectively, you should get well over 300,000 miles total from this engine.
Each person drives differently, so if you are the only driver and it's only driven to and from work + minor local driving (shopping etc.) this engine should last you as long as you own the vehicle. For a 98, 184,000 isn't bad - have seen less because owners are that particular about how often and how far they drive the vehicle, some of which have a secondary that they use for their more frequent traveling. It all depends on what you use this vehicle for.
I hope this information is helpful.

I need to know how to change the timing belt on my 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS

The best thing to do is go down to your local automotive store and buy a repair manual for your car. It will take you through the process better then what can be explained here and it has pictures to help you as well. I have a 97 GS and the book has been invaluable.
