It's that time again. Rather than put it into ford to do, thought i'd save myself some bucks. Guys what are the things i should do, other than change the oil, plugs, leads, coolant. I just want to make sure i do it right and not hurt the car in the long run. Also trying to figure out why my car has a real dead spot at low range revs when i put my foot down. I'm thinkin leads but is their somethin else i should chack/clean to fix this problem.

Thanks guys.

Flush brake lines every 2 years, every 40000k change air filter ,every60-80000k change fuel filter (its a bit nasty if you do not have a fuel line clamp), use correct grade oil or you will use more petrol - plus oil filter, if a automatic have a service at 100000k this includeds a filterchange inside the box - you cannot do this unless you have a hoist. The dead spot a low revs could be fuel filter or use a good quality injector cleaner at next full tank and do not add fuel until near empty.Washer bottle refill

Automatic service cost about $180 which includes the filter.
