Hey guys, Just upgraded from an extended cab 4banger I290(rebadged colorado) to a 2002 Sport Trac 2wd auto. We needed a bigger vehicle to haul a trailer and more space for a 6y/o and 14mo old while we didn't want to get a crew cab 8 cylinder for gas mileage reasons, although, so far, the mileage hasn't been great. I bought it with 106k and it seems like it was elderly owned. Very clean, one owner, fresh trade. I paid $4200 after my trade and doc. fees. I hope It was a good purchase. So far I'm really pleased with the vehicle. It has a clean CarFax but little to no maintenance records other than brand new Cooper Adventurer tires. The last oil change appears to have been done last summer/fall... YIKES! Oil change sticker on the window has next change at 108k. I'm not even there yet but, again, it was last year. The dealership said they topped off all fluids though. My questions are: what are some common quirks that a new owner may need to know? If I want to start using synthetic oil should I transition using synthetic blend for a couple of changes then switch to full synthetic? Or even high mileage synthetic blend? Castrol HM synthetic any good? I want to do a full maintenance/tune-up update so as far as the basics, plugs, wires, fuel and air filters, oil change, coils possibly? Does Ford recommend an ATF flush or drain/fill only procedure? How about the rear differential? Is there anything else one might suggest doing to get squared away? I'm looking to get a hitch and found the Curt model 13407 seems to have good reviews and can get it for about $130. Any pros/cons? Also looking for a bed extender and found one off a F150 fir $20. Will it fit? I'd really appreciate all the help I can get guys. I'm really excited about the vehicle and want to get the best performance, power, gas mileage, and longevity out of it as I can! Thanks guys!
