Default Maitenance at 140K?

My 94 GSR is approaching 140 thousand miles.. Is there a way to check when I should replace the timing belt? By the way, I purchased this car at 130 thousand miles so the previous owner did not replace it yet. What else should I be worried about replacing at this time?

Also occasionally the clutch pedal feels loose.. when i press it down it feels like my foot can swivel the pedal foward.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you're supposed to replace the timing belt at 90k.

I would replace it ASAP. Like Marshy said, it needs to be replaced at 90k miles. If it breaks, you will be in a world of hurt with bent valves, etc.

The clutch is most likely original, so it may be on it's way out as well. Check the tightness of the pedal assembly and then the master and slave cylinders for any leaks and bleed the system. If that doesn't help, you need a new clutch relatively soon.

How much quarts of oil should I put in my 91 Integra. I just got this thing and wanted to tune it up. I bought five qaurts, but how much am I going to use? Thanks.

I believe the timing belt has been replaced already, but i'm not sure if I should replace it again. I will call the previous owner today.

The new clutch was put in when I bought the car, so its probably just the pedal assembly.

Start with 3.7 quarts and check it after running it for a few minutes. Then top it off to the max line.

I need to get cheap quality calipers. How much do they cost on average for all four? This is for a 94 Sedan. I plan on changing them myself since I don't trust any of the garages around me, not even the dealers(They are overpriced and do horrible work). How hard is it of a job? I will probobly be getting an impact hammer, I heard that its hard to take the calipers off without one.
So what websites would be a good deal to buy from?
Anyone know of any cheap places?

Water pump and tensioner must be replaced along with the timing belt. To not replace them is to invite disaster.

If the water pump were to seize, the timing belt may snap.
If the tensioner fails, the timing belt may jump.

Either of these outcomes will ruin your day.
