100,000 mile Maintenance approaching - How much should this cost?

My car is approaching 100k miles and I was wondering how much I should expect to pay to do the 100k maintenance? I believe i remember reading something on what was involved in the 100k mile maintenance but feel free to refresh my memory if anyone has any input
Thanks everyone

I think "100K maintenance" is pretty dependent on what you've done to the car so far, and exactly how proactive you want to be, since something as simple as changing the tranny fluid or battery can be surprisingly expensive. But in general, I'd say now would be a good time to change ALL fluids (coolant, transmission, differential, power steering, transfer case) if it's been a while or any of those have never been done. Also, check/replace your air filter, check the serpentine belt for wear/issues, inspect/consider replacing the engine idler pulley, consider replacing the water pump/tstat if it hasn't failed yet (which would be impressive), definitely get a new battery if that hasn't been done, and check hoses for cracks/hardening (although they probably have a lot more life in em).

Naturally you should be keeping up with plugs, brake fluid, pads, oil etc per CBS computer.

Well I thought the Coolant was lifetime coolant... Either way it 100k I would change it out and do transmission flush, rear diff fluid, check suspension and most probably would do an oil change at that time.

Also why would you change out the plugs? Its usually at 60-70k you change it out right wouldn't the interval be another 60-70k? I would do this well before the 100k and a little after 100k probably 115k.

Well i bought the car at 74k and had no idea whether the plugs had been changed so i figured it couldnt hurt, oil change I did just a couple thousand miles ago, and as far as the suspension Im waiting till spring and doing some KWs baby
Plus I work at a dealership so my cost is redic cheap
