    Certainly keep the oil and filter changes going as scheduled. That helps the engine greatly. Did you do the timing belt at 90,000 miles (@145,000km)? Some guys don't change it and have no problems and others say oil/filter and timing belt are two big things.

    Not saying this is all, but these are two to keep up with. I'm sure others will have more to say to help you out.
