90K Tuneup... Just doublechecking
Ladies & Gentlemen,
I am a PROUD owner of a 1999 Ranger 3.0L Flex Fuel (not that I can buy any flex-gas in Georgia). I am the third owner & the records were not well kept. I have had it for about 40K miles and kept up with the oil/air filter & fluid changes but know that the other stuff must be done now. I am doing the 90K maintenance myself according to the Chilton's manual.
Question 1 > I am replacing the sparkplugs and wires, should I also include the coil?
Question 2 > I am replacing the radiator fluid and upper/lower hoses, should I also repalce the thermostat? If so what temperature thermostat? I am equipped with A/C if that makes a difference; and yes i am also replacing the fan belt in case you were wondering.
Question 3 > I want to replace the fuel filter but had a heck of a time getting the old one loose. I actually gave up, and put the old one back on for now. Is there a special tool that I need to loosen the fuel line that runs from the tank to the rear of the fuel filter?
Thank you in advance for your help.
