Many firsts here and car

Hey y'all name is Tim and I'm from Cincinnati. Just bought an 04 ford focus svt hatchback and decided to join up with you fine folks for some words of wisdom. I am new to the svt world so my biggest concerns are general maintainence, such as, recommended fluids, plugs, wires, brakes all the routine stuff that one would need to know to properly care for this car. I am an overall ford enthusiast and am blown away to officially be a part of the svt family and now this one. I also am noticing that this poor little car has gone through a phase of a fast and furious car owner as a lot of the original parts have been switched with, in my opinion, less then average accessories, so in addition to the maintenance parts looking for advice for svt parts and where to get them. Looking for your input and I will try to input what I can along the way being a backyard mechanic myself. Until then keep em rolling!!!

Welcome!

Hands down the most important thing you need to do is replace the timing belt or at least determine how old it is. A lot of the other stuff will help keep the car running in tip top shape, but the timing belt is one thing that can kill the car in an instant.

Have you ever been to the car show they have in Milford every Friday, April to October? There is also going to be another get together called Cars & Coffee that is supposed to start on March 30th at Little Miama Brewing Company.
