Picked up a lower mileage 2.0 AEG during one of the 50 percent off sales last year at LKQ. Just wondering if I have everything covered as far as a maintenance checklist before it gets swapped in. I will be doing a new valve cover gasket, intake gasket, exhaust gaskets, oil filter gasket, plugs, and wires. If anyone can make any recommendations as to what else would be wise to replace while everything is easily accessible, I would love to hear it. The timing belt job looks like it had been done recently before entering its final resting place, however it appears to me that it is off a tooth. I'm attaching a picture to see if everyone agrees. The marks on the crank pulley are perfectly lined at the bottom. I will be checking to see if the water pump was replaced with one that has metal impellers.
