Default nearing 100,000

i'm nearing 100.000 miles on my bonny. i just changed the trans fluid, the starter, the plugs/wire, the upper intake (plenum), brakes (fronts are new, rear are OEM). Any suggestions of things to check and/or change at around 100,000 miles?

Thanks

Fuel filter (if you haven't yet), and I would take a close look at that water pump. I just replaced mine (105k) along with a similiar list of things, just because I intend on keeping the car for awhile.

Transaxle fliud? Has anyone changed theirs?

PS- I just did a spell check on transaxle and and the computer suggested transsexual. LOL

I would also change the front 02 sensor if it has not been changed yet.

Air filter, though it should have been changed before 100K. PCV valve would be another.

not in our application, the differential is fed through the transmission fluid
