Honda accord lx 1999

My car has 200000 miles on it and it is still running great. Would you pls tell me which part of the car need to replace to keep it running well.

Primarily you want to do everything listed in the owner’s manual, especially the timing belt. Hopefully you’ve been doing that all along.

The only extra thing that I can think of at this point is that maybe you’d want to replace the drive belt or belts and have the hoses checked by a mechanic to see if they’re still in good shape, although you could always wait for one to go if you don’t mind a breakdown.

yes i did replace the timing belt and water bump. i just wonder about the shocks, altornator, or any big items. thanks for your advices.
