Hey guys. Im curious what maint i need to do at 50k. I went to the local ford dealership to ask them but they werent too helpful when they learned im going to do it myself.

i need to change the oil in the stang now but i need to know what else i should probably do at this mileage?
trans serv?
fuel filter?
rear diff fluid?
something other than fluids?

This is one of my favorite thread topics!

You should:

-bleed brakes
-inspect suspension components
-change spark plugs
-change differential fluid
-clean MAF
-replace shocks and struts unless you have already
-wax under hood scoop
-inspect brake pads
-flush and fill coolant
-have car aligned and wheels balanced
-inspect wheel bearings, ball joints, and tie rod ends
-clean and condition all rubber, window seals, and interior trim with 303 Aerospace Protectant
-set all tires at exactly your preferred pressure
-install a Goodyear Gator belt

Let me know it you have any questions about any of that. A lot of the instructions can be found at the Bullitt Archive, if you need them.
Only the greatest stuff ever made for rubber and plastic! :nice:

It blocks UV, makes the rubber and plastic VERY slightly shiny and there is no gooey residue like armor all. I have been using it for a year and it ROCKS. It is especially good for the vinyl convertible top.
