It needs a tuneup & fluid change + belts & hoses, etc.DaDr00 said:My sister just was given a 2001 V6 Auto. It has 108k and was serviced at the dealer regularly. (so says carfax)
My question is: What reccomended major maintenance needs to be done on this little pony?
Everything sounds good in the car, except for some random noises and a slight driveshaft vibration. Is it due for an overhaul, or just throw a new block in? I'm not too familiar with Fords, but willing to learn.
Thanks for your input! :thumbsup
The engine is duty rated a 200,000 miles, if the previous owner used the motorcraft semi-synth or better.
It shouldn't need an overhaul for another 80-90,000 miles.
I'd put in subframe connectors to eliminate some of the squeeks and rattles, and to keep the unibody in good shape . ..
