General Engine Tune up

So what is the best thing to do for an engine over the 100,000 mile range to get the thing running like new? For any size engine really just a general question about what should be replaced or cleaned at that point to keep the car running clean.

New plugs, coils, and fuel filter are a must. It's amazing how many people forget about a cheap fuel filter.

on the s197 platform on the drivers side of the car near the seat area, the fuel filter is located inside the big black cover on the underbody and is very easy to get to. Just unbolt the door protecting it and get the get the old one off. The 99-04's I'm not really for sure as I've never worked on one of those but I have heard the process is a bit more involved. As always when your doing these unplug the battery to make sure the fuel pump is off and wear eye protection!!! Nothing worse than spraying gas in your eyes.

Also, an air filter. I bought a car with what looked like a stock air filter. I swear I got like 5 mpg better after I replaced it.

I would also suggest using Sea Foam in the gas and throught the intake.

99-04 they are in the back between the rear axle and the fuel tank. jack up the rear end and crawl under there, you cant miss it. make sure you bleed the fuel pressure before you change it though.
