Some maintenance is due at TIME as well as MILEAGE. Yours is running about equal, so you are in good shape! :applause:

Congrats on doing the brake fluid replacement...often overlooked.

Things that you might consider performing are a coolant drain, and a valvetrain adjustment.

Potential issues that I see on the Forums are: power lock actuators and worn A/C compressor clutches. These depend on usage of course...

Its a DIY for sure, not too difficult. A few hours, the first time.

Here's a vid (Element is the same engine as the V)


If you chicken out :Darn: allow 1 - 2 hours labor time at the shop of your choice.

You don't need to buy (or pay for) any parts or gaskets, just a few dabs of an OIL RESISTANT RTV/sealer for the corners of the valve cover gasket.

'Bent-Tip' feeler gauges make the job easier if you need to buy some.
