100,000 miles, what to do?

2004 Expedition 4x4 XLT with tow package and 5.4.

Turning 100,000 miles soon, asking for advice on what to do:

Transmission oil?
Transfer case oil?
Spark Plugs?
Diffs oil?
Fan belt?
Timing/cam chain?
Brake fluid?
Power steering fluid?
Shock absorbers?
Coolant?

What else can you experts think of?

Thanks...

Re: 100,000 miles, what to do?

I would totally buy an Expedition Diesel, if they made one...

But wow, it looks as though the service intervals are much longer than I expected.

Still, I'm going to do those things I listed, as well as a new fuel filter.

Question though, my vehicle has no transmission dipstick, sooo, where do I fill in the new fluid?

Thanks.

Ours have dipsticks. I didn't think they were stickless in 2004.

Re: 100,000 miles, what to do?

You are correct sir!
Too many vehicles, got confused.

Ok, so besides the timing chain I think I'll do my list. Anyone suggest the timing chain, or wait until it rattles?

I tow a heavy (6000+ pound) boat into the mountains regularly, if that makes a difference.

I wouldn't worry about the timing chain at all. Especially since you service your vehicles properly.

Ok. Can anyone else suggest anything else that might fail as this vehicle reaches it's mid life?

Re: 100,000 miles, what to do?

That is astonishing.
I've always liked my Expedition, I like how it is basically a simple do it all truck. Nothing fancy or high tech to go wrong.
Thanks for all the advice and links...
