well FORD says

timing chain
honestly i wouldnt go through the trouble of getting to the timing chain

02sensor-id deffinitly do that
air filter
oil filter-oil change
fuel filter
transmission flush
check your shocks out/springs
spark plugs
spark plugs wires
vacuum hoses
if you really wana go the extra miles check out the fuel injectors

ok thanks chris

I was also wondering wat is usually at about the life parts wise like alternators adn such, how often to replace belts, etc etc
well the alternator i wouldnt replace unless its bad just like the starter
no need to replace it if it works

also flushing your coolant is good

Be ready for your head gaskets to go out soon.

99-00 engines tend to carbon up the rear two cylinders (#3 and *6) due to defective PCV design. If you start to get a lot of pinging on acceleration there are chemical methods to remove the carbon.

i have 180K miles on my 1995
head gaskets blew at 154K
never changed timing chain. Should I?
ditto injectors
i guarentee i redline her twice a day
stock alternator new battery at 150
new vacuum hoses (bad ones cause horrid idle problems)
Tremec T5 untouched
new clutch
without the headgasket thing it has been a pretty uneventful car
just keep with basic maintenennce
