60K Maintenance

I have a '94 explorer that all I've ever done maintenance wise are oil
changes, lube and air filters. It now has 61,000 miles (I don't drive it
much). Do I need to do some other maintenance such as fuel filter, spark
plugs and wires, etc? It runs great and just passed California enhanced
smog check easily. Thanks.

Re: 60K Maintenance

You are certainly running on borrowed time with almost 12 year old
belts and hoses. I'd change those.

If you just passed the emissions tests, I wouldn't worry about plugs
and wires. The fuel filter will let you know when it starts going bad,
and it's not likely to strand you the way a bad belt or hose would.
Besides changing the fuel filter is a pain.

Check your owner's manual for more things Ford might suggest.

You should have the transmission flushed and filter changed, and the
transfer case fluid changed. I would also change the plugs (and
possibly the wires if they're in bad shape).
