Okay I am trying to figure out some stuff I need to check or get checked. My truck has just rolled to 30,000. The only things I have changed/checked/replaced are:

- Fuel system cleaner (every 3'000 miles)
- Oil change (every 3'000 miles)
- Replaced factory belt with Dayco Poly Cog Belt
- Replaced faulty power steering pulley
- Tires rotated regularly

That's it. I am going to be getting an alignment soon so that will not be needed. Is there anything that I need to replace/check/change at 30,000? Thanks!

According to Ford, the 30k mile service includes:

*Change engine oil and replace oil filter
*Inspect brake pads/shoes/rotors/drums, brake lines and hoses, and parking brake system
*Inspect engine cooling system and hoses
*Perform multi-point inspection
*Rotate tires for optimal tire life
*Inspect complete exhaust system and heat shields
*Inspect wheel ends for end play and noise
*Replace engine air filter
*Inspect and lubricate steering linkage, ball joints, suspension and, if equipped, half shafts drive shaft and u-joints
*Replace fuel filter

1st off DO NOT go to Ford for the 30k otherwise they'll rape you $460+! I would go and quote around other places. Like I went to Goodyear and they quoted $220-50 range not too bad and 1/2 the price.

Then again I see your doing everything yourself so thats even better lol.
