My car has a little over 60k miles and I swapped my plugs.

Honestly I couldn't tell a huge difference. Even though the stock plugs were out of spec on gap.

raptor1956 That reminded me -- I haven't changed my cabin filter since about 42K miles and I'm now at over 66K miles. I also need to check one of my fuses (F62) that's in the same area.

Yanik I buy my filter at amazon for $10-$14 (there is 1 right now for $9.20 + free shipping). It's quite tricky to get it in, but after a few changes you do all in 5 minutes. Am at my 5th one, at that price - why not change it every summer/winter?

There's a very good vid on You Tube on the change. It can be fiddly. The video is very comprehensive, it's the one where the guy has an asian accent. (Sorry Donald, didn't mean to be politically incorrect).

JoshuaCurrie I buy mine from my local auto parts store. Not really sure if Ford changes them during maintenance. Also they are located on the passenger side behind a door that has a torex screw. Also there is a lower dash piece that has to be removed with two push tabs holding the cover in place.

JoshuaCurrie I've changed my cabin air filter twice now. First time I changed mine it looked like yours and man did it make the car smell bad.

04ZTSJelf Still under 15k miles on my 2014. No problems, DD in traffic, just gotta treat it right.

Also, I suggest you guys check your cabin air filter if you haven't. This is what mine looked like.

JoshuaCurrie My Focus just hit 80k today. In 20k mile my clutch warranty goes bye bye. :( Time to start shopping around for an aftermarket warranty. I'm needing to get another 60 to 70k miles out of my Focus.

Do you have a lot of stop and go traffic to contend with?
I live in Memphis metro. Definitely warm in summer. More issues with jerky starts and weird shifts when hot and city driving. 95% of the time the car drives and shifts perfectly fine. I go through 2 tanks of fuel a week at this point. 1 mostly highway and 1 mostly city.
