2010 Taurus SHO 100,000 mile service

Question

Hey guys- original owner here. Well cared for vehicle just a bit over 96,000 miles. Original front brakes, rears replaced at 84,500 -dealer claimed fronts were "good".

 

Other than new battery at 65,000 and original Good Year Eagles replaced at 77,800 (with new Eagles-can't mess with success!) I'm thinking probably a front brake job and what else? Plugs?

 

Runs well, mixed driving mileage usually 23.5-24. Extended highway at 70 + and it will hit 25.

 

Opinions?

 

PS- car delivered 12/09 so this is its 9th New England winter.

My recommendations are at 100k if not already done.

Air filter

Cabin filter

Wipers

Spark plugs

Coolant change

Trans fluid change. (Drain and refil or fluid exchange)

When they do brakes change the brake fluid, it absorbs water.

On a AWD vehicle, I change the PTU fluid if accessible.

Im on the fence about that. Part of me says let a sleeping dog lay. But they are known for failures so changing the fluid may or may not make a difference in life expectancy.

Some guys recommend fuel injector cleaning, but I dont necessarily recommend it on turbo cars. However, cleaning the throttle body can help idle quality.

 

Ive done all this stuff on my personal cars. Yet Im very OCD about making sure stuff is tip top.

FT -thx- Air filter-done at appropriate oil chnge

-Cabin filter-Never! where is it?

-coolant-good point-lulled into thinking -not like old days when it was like 24 mos.

Other than rear brakes and battery-only other maintenance item was right blend air motor gave out at 90,000.

HOPE I'M NOT BRAGGING TOO SOON :)

Cabin filter is accessed behind the glove box.

In my experience those are good cars and have seen several with some high mileage. I had a 09 flex regularly come in with over 200k Miles. At this point some stuff was starting to go wrong like a cooling fan motor, oxygen sensors but nothing catastrophic.
