Re: 30,000 mile service
Trans service is not recommended by Ford unless severe use or heavy towing is done on that trans.
Injector flush is not recommended by Ford, a dealer upsale item.
Note: both these items are not required but aren't a bad idea either.
Draining the fluid and refilling what drains does keep additive level higher in ATF. This can add extra miles to transmission.
The deposits on backside of intake valves, if any is there, can build to a level that will cause poor cold running performance.
