    If it's serviced regular just keep driving it as no point replacing bits untill they fail.

    Do the above belt and water pump if it's driven from belt & aux belt.

    As bigtee said, get belts done and water pump

    oil changed every 10-15K along with a service every 10k

    a run through of redex or similar and a can of '10K boost' will help clear things up too and keep it running smooth
