    Suppose you have a 2009 SF Ltd 3.3L with 97k miles. Also suppose you haven't done a lot of the scheduled service on it. If you were having the valve gaskets replaced, what other maintenance would you have done at the same time because they already have the engine tore down? Anything like belts or hoses or plugs exposed that should be replaced while it's easy to get to?

    Check to see if you have a timing belt or chain.
    If timing belt then may be a good idea to service it???
    Valve cover gasket is not really tearing down an engine.
    But, it would be a good idea to inspect all belts and hoses.
    Test AC and heating systems.
