I know little about this rig other than it was a one owner for the first 234k miles. I'm working thru some gremlins right now but for the most part the engine seems strong. Previous owner to me installed a new starter and had transmission service and oil service at 238k. I have opened up the timing belt observation window(see photos) and the belt looks pretty decent to me. I've checked it a couple of times randomly. My question is this. Given the miles on the engine should I just risk it and try to push on as long as I can until I am forced to do a rebuild or should I spend the money now and have a new belt and water pump installed? Is it reasonable to think I can squeeze much more out of this engine? Thanks for your input.
