Just wanted to know what I should do with these recommended things to do from my Kmart receipt. Perhaps you guys could do a numbered thing, like so... (1. should do first, most important)
1. brake flush
2. drive belt has split
etc.

Here's the list of things to do:
Brake Flush
Oil leaks degrease recheck
Pwr steer low pressure hose leaking
Pwr steering pump
Drive belt has split

Just like to knock over a one a week and wondering where I should start. Thanks guys.

IN order of what I would do:

There are 2 items for number 2 as both will cause fluid loss so do it once.

1.Drive belt has split
2.Pwr steer low pressure hose leaking
2.Pwr steering pump
3.Brake Flush (what makes you think its needed)
4.Oil leaks degrease recheck

Hard to install? How much would it cost to have someone do it?

Back the tensioner off, remove belt, put new one in, let tensioner off and it tensions, unless i missed something, never done one, but about 15 minute mechanic job.

dont think it would be too hard, if you have a bit of knowledge i.e. your not completly baffled when you open the bonnet.
You need to remove the fans, then just loosen off tension on the belt, rip it off, lay the new one on the way the old one came off and let the tension back on. And put the fans back of course.
Not too sure what it would cost to have someone do it, couldnt imagine more than half an hours labour

a new ford one should not be more than $35.
to install
remove the black cover across from the ps pump to thermostat housing, nut on passenger side of it and undo the ps pump cap.
remove the intake snorkel, two srews out the front and twist it out.
remove thermos, undo the plug and the 2 bolts at the top each corner, then pull it up, two clips at the bottom you'll see em.

then wrap a cable arnd the belt near the waterpump and pull up towards the drivers side and pull it off the pulley.
do everything in reverse and thats it, abt 20 min if that.

edit: damn dial up

Its not that hard to replace. All you need to do is get a 3/8 ratchet in the middle of the tentioner, and losen it off. You may need an extension on the end of the ratchet as it can be fairly tight.
