Re: 90K Tuneup... Just doublechecking
The 3.0 engine holds up very well. To answer your questions, #1 no, #2 no if your engine temp is normal. Stock t-stat I'm pretty sure is 195*. #3 my previous Ranger was a '99 3.0 4x4 and I couldn't even FIND the fuel filter so I paid the dealer a few bucks to do it. Turns out it was up above the transfer case and they said I was better off just letting them do it on a lift. It does take a special tool.
'05 Sport Trac 4x4, L/S, torsion lift, extended shackles, 265's
'03 Taurus wagon, Silverstars, Yoko TRZ's
