Any recommendations on other things to do at the same time. My dealer seems to think all that is needed is a belt and oil seal unless they see something else. ??:icon_question:

No! Everything under the timing belt cover should be replaced at the same time. That means the tensioner, the water pump, and the cam seals if they are leaking.

As mentioned..I had everything there replaced...4 idlers, WP, tensioner, belt, hose, thermostat, .also had the two aux belts replaced. seals weren't leaking so they didn't replace.

I had like 108K miles on my 08 when replaced. Whole thing was like $1250..glad I did it.

Timing belt, water pump (and gasket), idler pulleys, t-stat, upper and lower rad hoses, both aux belts, ac tension pulley, coolant and conditioner. Those were my ingredients.
