120,000 service soon up

My 99 9-3 will soon reach the 120,000 mark, but the engine itself only has 80k because the old one had sludge issues and I replaced it 2 yrs ago. Anyway, what should should be looked over and changed at this point, engine and mechanically wise.

Well if ur not on syntehtic u might as well switch it to that. Manual tran.fluid should be changed at about 100k. Get new spark plugs, check timing, radiator flush, brakes check especially e-barke, air filter, and you should be good from there.

Then u should be in good shape for right now the way it sounds. But wat about a radiator flush? most people over look that and it is pretty important, cuz its do a major part by keepin the engine cool. Get that flushed so that sludge doesn't start to buil up, and u can do that once a year. Other then that jus keep up wit her the way ur doin it and u won't any major problems. Promise.

Did they swap over your engine accesories or use the one from the other engine.

Point being, my Alternator went at about 120k miles. Be ready for it.
