I purchased my mustang not too long ago. I recently cleaned my iac and it was really dirty. I just wanted to ask about what other engine parts I can clean to maintain my car, also if there are any parts I should replace(123,000 miles) . I'm already replacing the fuel filter, things along the lines of that. I'd appreciate all your input and am really eager to find out more about my mustang!

Also, if you guys have any preferred cleaning products that would help.

Check or replace your air filter if you have a CAI then clean the filter. Check or change your anti freeze.
A lot of people like to run sea foam through their car. It cleans out the intake, injectors ect. You can put it into your gas tank or through a vacuum line or both ways.
I almost forgot obviously engine oil and filter
It wouldn't hurt to at least check your spark plugs, and possibly change them.
Everything I mentioned can be done in a few hours, I'm sure others will chime in with something I left out.
Good luck and enjoy your ride!!!!

New trans fluid and rear differential fluid probably wouldn't hurt. You could also do stuff like spark plugs, but IMO if it's running fine with the ones that are in it then don't worry about that for now.

I'm really big on cleaning the MAF sensor when first getting a used car. If your a in-tune with your car kind of guy you might notice better throttle response and better mpg as well as recovered power. Keep an eye out for a gas leak where the filler tube connects to the tank. The rubber grommet there doesn't last forever.. cheap and easy to replace.

Check all shocks including quad shocks for abnormal seepage of fluid. Inspect all vaccum lines especially the rubber ones for cracks or tears. Also be sure to check for any signs of a bad head gasket. Milky like substance in your crankcase (check inside the cap) or coolant check the cap there as well.
