Mileage & Repairs
122,000 miles. Front brakes at 92k. I'm fixing (southern expression) to replace all the hoses, the water pump, the rollers and the serpentine belt and go to DELO 500,000 mile coolant. The gasket where the drive shaft enters the differential has a very small leak and I will get it fixed in a month or so. The front end has an intermittent bounce when I hit a bump and I suspect the front end will need some work when I have it into the shop for the other things in a week or so.
The belts, hoses, and water pump/belt rollers are working fine, but with 122k and 8 years and planning on a long Alaska trip, I want to make sure everything is in good shape.
Service, fluids, and filters absolutely changed by the Ford maintenance manual. No mods. I drive it like I paid for it with my own money and I plan to drive it until I die... If I'm lucky I'll live long enough that the state will take away my license, but I ain't counting on it.
