Maintenance/Alternator Replacement

Hello All,

My wife 2005 Cobalt LT needs a new alternator. So I'm taking it down to a trusted shop. I'm buying the alternator (AC Delco) and a new belt to take the shop (I've done this before with the owner). What other things should I be looking at to be replaces while the car is at the shop? Timing chain? water pump? etc?

It's got 90,000 and runs very well, once I replaced twice the cracked spark plugs.

Thanks
Red

Maybe an oil change and tire rotation. Might be time enough to get your antifreeze changed as well

Timing chain tensioner if it's noisy at startup.
