Timing belt, water pump and oil/filter change at 298,115 km, then drove 900 km home. Inching to 300k km. . But Looking back at past posts, the last TB changed was done in the fall of 2013 at 242,985 km, so I was way ahead of the interval km-wise; I thought I last replaced the belt earlier after I got the car in my hands and with fewer kms - I guess I should read the posts here first before making big and expensive decisions... The belt still looked great but with the 12mm injection pump I didn't want to push it anywhere near the full 100k km anyway - the first-generation automatic ALHs with 11mm injection pump recommended 40k mile (~65k km) TB replacements so I don't really regret the peace-of-mind of having done it, but it came at an inconvenient time and parts were very hard to get with the perceived rush and urgency that didn't turn out to be the case...

Also fixed a coolant leak at the hoses from the water pump outlet to the cylinder head flange alongside the block.

Edit: I can tell that the stretching TB had retarded the injection timing sufficiently to have a noticeable effect on fuel consumption. Coming down I was doing about 5.4 L/100 km on the highway, returning after I'm at 5.0 (with AC on all the way). The drive is all-freeway over 900 km and I do it so frequently that I'm confidently aware of even small differences in fuel consumption. That alone is worth something. If I average a 5% hit in fuel economy over 100k km interval, based on my Fuelly running cost of 6 cents per km, that will mean $300.

Oil filter change with Mobil 1 0W-40 European Car Formula / Mobil 1 Extended Performance Oil Filter @314136. A little over 100000 km in less than 3 years in my hands. Still soldering on.

British Columbia and back, almost exactly 9000 km - under $450 in fuel and only a flat tire.
