Hi all, not on the thread very often, since the car is near perfect in terms of reliability for over 10 years, but I am approaching 8k or so on my machine and wanted to check around for recommendations on some servicing needed. I live in Mass. area and none of the Ford dealers will touch it, but some of the work needs facilities and tools I don't have. Have reached out per Roketman (our Roketman, not Trump's!) and he had some suggestions, but I haven't heard back from them yet. Any recommendations on in-depth service that I can reach out to?

Other than the Oil etc.....
Check your Oil Pump belt from under the car - look for cracks - dry rot.
