2005 Dodge CTD 2WD finally approaching the 100K mile mark. I've owned it since new and have done periodic routine maintenance. At 50K I preemptively replaced the water pump, serpentine belt, tensioner and pulley.

Now at 100K I'm wondering if I should look at replacing any of these items again.

Any other items that I might look at replacing?

At minimum I'd change the belt again just due to age.

Was flushing the brake lines part of your periodic routine maintenance? If not, I'd do that for sure.

And no one will back up the reasoning why you need 50k intervals on water pump and serpentine components. That’s just p!swing money away.
100k and 15 years? trans, diff, extra fuel filtration, coolant, brake fluid, PS fluid if those haven’t been done.

Yes, I flush my break lines about every 30K but that's probably too often unless the truck is used in very frequent start/stop applications.

Last one was done simply because front break hoses were replaced.

Based on your maintenance thus far, you've gone well above and beyond what is necessary. Fillerup with fuel and go!

Whatever was done at 50k should be repeated at 100k for the same reasons.

Personally I would stick to the book on scheduled maintenance. If it needs brakes, replace the fluid too. If it needs coolant replaced, sure do the water pump. Filters and oil, go by the book.

At 15 years at least check the radiator and heater hoses for soft spots or hardening of the rubber. In general this stuff actually lasts a lot longer than it used to.

^Except all the stuff that was done so very early compared to expected component lifespans that it certainly doesn’t need to be done extra early again.
On the upside, one could sell their gently used OE parts...

timetoroll has the answer.

However if replacing stuff gives a warm and fuzzy just do it. [emoticon]
