tune-up time?

I have a 2006 Focus ZX5 ses, auto, 40 miles and wondering if it is time for a tine up. Do you need to change the air filter in these Duratecs?

tune up is always good, never bad. yea you have to change the filter, like any engine but it's cheap and very simple. If you have some extra cash, go to a K&N filter

the air filter is supposed to be good for 150,000 miles the plugs are good for 100,000 miles.fuel filter and oil changes are all you should have to do.

autometer is a gauge company im pretty sure he means autolite.

there is nothing wrong with the motorcraft or NGK plugs many people here run the autolite copper plugs since there is a slight gain in performance (incase you want more info on this check out the duratec section theres a huge sparkplug thread going on right now lol) and they're very cheap.

im assuming the 40miles means 40,000 lol, in all honesty the best thing to do is follow whats in the manual.

if you havent changed : automatic transmission fluid, fuel filter, those are due right around this time. aside from that just drive it, or mod

p.s. come to the massiv monday meet on focuscanada.net in a couple days!
