    I have a Honda Accord and it has 80K on it and i figure its time for a full tune up. Idling really crappy and shitty gas mileage. I want to replace the spark plugs, timing belt and balancer belt, maybe spark plug wires and distrubitor cap/rotors, fuel filters and do valve adjustments.
    The problem is, I dont know where i can find a list of the OEM parts. I dont want to replace them with cheapo parts that dont work well and end up replacing anyway. And i know, usually the OEM parts are more expensive most often, but at least i can get an a comparison to good aftermarket parts. i.e. say the plugs are NGK Vpower that cost $13 a piece but the Iridiums are only $12. I would go with the Iridiums. They are better than platniums right? even in an NA car with no mods :lol:
    Oh yeah, one more thing, how are is it to do the tranny oil?? it looks intimidating.

    Thanks for the replies in advance.

    I get all my oem part numbers from here. They got factory diagrams and they have there prices about 20% than if you went to a local honda dealer, or atleast thats what it turns out to be for me. I have gone to a local dealership parts department and the numbers match so that helps know that there part numbers on the website are legit along with the prices.
