Hi
I have 2 Ford V6's first is a 1986 Ford Ranger STX 2.9L close to 400,000KM
second is a 1992 Ford Aerostar XL 4.0L AWD 250,000KM.
Just learning about the Aerostar was given to up free owner thought it had tranny problems, but mechanic says nope. He did a tranny flush and it came out very dirty. It does have "CEL" on so have to get codes read, also has "ERROR 3" on odometer. I think Error 3 is related to RABS system.
Question
To do a tune up do I just replace plugs/wires, filters, fluids.

Does used to own count lol. 2.8-76 Mustang 2.9-87 Ranger 3.8 86 T-Bird 4.0-92 Ranger. I absolutely loved the 2.8 I had in the 76 Mustang. I put 2:55 gears in once and buried the speedo over 120 mph. Not bad for a 171 cubic inch 2 bbl 4 speed. The crank finally snapped in it around 120,000 miles but it never quit running. Awesome engine for its size. Of course now its all BBF

I have a '93 Ranger splash with a 4.0. I installed a custom ground cam with 514 lift and 282/294 duration ported heads and 10:1 compression. It stays with the v8's really well! I am currently buiding a 408!! That's going to be lots of fun!!

I own a 2010 mustang 4.0. I have cold air intake, and custom tunes from BAMA. Planning on a few more bolt ons, and a full exhaust soon.
