bleeding the clutch isn't that hard, I managed to do it by myself, though it would've been nice to have someone fill the thing while I pumped the pedal

You'll probably already do this, but check your brake pads when you rotate the tires. Also, its usually a good idea to check and make sure all of your brake lights and turn signals, etc are working properly. Since you'll be out working on the car already, you could lube the suspension also if that hasn't been done recently. Other than that, I can't think of anything except checking tire pressures.

Already have the parts? I took my car in to have the timing belt replaced at the dealer since they were running a special. $500 out the door, parts and labor for the timing belt, balancer belt, tensioner, balancer seals, water pump, and a few other things. not bad. but it got better.

They GAVE me new cap, rotor, OEM wires, and OEM plugs. just because. I have Magnecore wires and all the other stuff had just been done. It wasn't part of the service, they said it was an "emmisions warranty" or something. they just gave me the parts, left them on my back seat.

Yeah, our cars have a 100,000 mile warranty on the emissions system. Free checkups at 25,000 mile intervals up to 100,000. All parts, labor, and replacement included. :) Neat, eh?

Only the 1997 models, as part of a recall mandated by the US government against Honda.

get your tires balanced and an allignment done,and why not go ahead and try using carb cleaner and running it through your motor,there was a discussion on this awhile ago,and alot of the people that tried it said they felt a little better pickup because it cleaned out all the carbon buildup
