I have a 1994 Toyota Tercel with about 126,000 miles on it. I bought the car used at 90,000 miles, and have not had any major work done since. It runs great, but after a recent oil change, the mechanic recommended I have the timing belt replaced, based on the car's mileage--that it could go at any time without warning and severely damage the engine. He also recommended I replace the fuel filter. I recently moved and this is a new mechanic for me. Are these good recommendations, or is he just finding things for me to spend money on?
