What should I replace with TIMING BELT??

2001 Zetec (SE)
Have over 200,000 miles, along with the
timing belt
what else should be replaced during this?
Part numbers & actual factory descriptions would REALLY HELP since I am NOT familiar with such!
Thanks guys this is a GREAT site!

To add to what dave89iroc stated, I would also say to replace the accessory belt as well if it is needed. Check the motor mount as well to make sure it is solid.

You should look at your oil pump strainer(pick up tube) at 200k for sure. Replace it if it's clogged with sludge.

I wouldn't bother with that, rather since you yank valve cover to time cams, the condition under valve cover will be highly indicative of what's in the pan at the oil pickup...........

Or you can go to Rockauto.com and get a kit that is whatever brand you want for about the same price.

Rockauto is a good source for parts use them as much as possible. Thing is you need to watch shipping. They ship from various warehouse and when you are order 4 different parts try to get them from a single warehouse to cut down on shipping cost.

RockAuto should have kits available from name brand...

http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/more...493&cc=1385524

Gates part for $62 (use the 5% discount codes easily available). I would not trust ebay parts for my timing belt.

Or also get a kit with the water pump... http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/more...306&cc=1385524
