Year 2000 and 46,678mls on the clock - then yes it needs replaced if it hasn't been done before. The V6 is less prone to failure than the TS but with that age it needs replaced.

Do a search for the other parts that should be replaced at the same time - its a big and expensive job

Yes, change it. The book says every 72K miles, I`m happy with 60K mile changes(ish), but if yours has been on since new then its too old and has to go!

Don`t forget to have the tensioners changed too, and if you intend to keep the car for a while, get the water pump changed as well.

Welcome to AO :)
