with that many miles i'd get all new rubber (belts, hoses, tires) you must perform the timing belt because when those go bad (and they can with this many miles) they will break and could destroy the whole engine. flush all fluids. do NOT get and engine flush though. that can clog oiling ports and cause vital engine parts to be deprived of oil and seize. do all the brakes and get them bled. make sure the break lines aren't rusty. just keep up with oil changes too and it'll be fine.

the owner's manual for 2000 civic is your best guide for maintenance. follow all the steps for your mileage.

the timing belt should have been changed at about 100,000 miles and again probably around 200,000. at one of those times the water pump was recommended to be replaced.

brakes should be bled and flushed every 30,000 miles. other brake service should be performed as recommended by a serviceman.

and so it goes.

good luck with your car.

I would replace all the fluids and filters. Don't replace belts, hoses, and tires just for the sake of replacing them. Inspect them first. If they are worn (brakes and tires) replace them. If belts are starting to show cracks or are frayed, replace them. If they are in good condition save the money. If you take it to a shop for them to evaluate what work should be done have them show you the brakes, tires, etc, so they won't overstate the work needed because they need money.
