New shocks/struts check for other suspension wear on ball joints/bushings. All filters/plugs/fluids. Check hoses belts and belt tensioner. If battery is over 5yrs get it tested, sears does this for free. Possibly o2 sensors maf. Most of this is unnecessary but will help the car to run like new and another 100k mi

Did all this on my explorer and ran like new at 160k mi until a stupid hs girl rear ended me while texting in her moms new Altima.

As these guys already said: Plugs, Fuel Filter, Trans fluid, Radiator flush, Hand clean Throttle body, Clean MAF sensor, etc.

That should get your Mustang running in tip top shape! Not to mention prolong its life.

^ and they got best price around for OEM. I ordered mine from AM works perfectly, fits perfectly, just was a bit challenging to get the filter in.

I had an 04 V6 with 149,000 miles on it. I delivered pizza in it too! It was running pretty good, had a new clutch put on it at about 145,000 miles... Ran fine until I got in an accident on a delivery...

Eh, it wasn't as bad as it seems. I hit a F-150 so the guys bumper was fine. Only damage was to my car and I didn't file a claim. Next thing I know, I got a 2006 V6 with 13,000 miles on it and that was like 2 months ago

Doesn't sound as good as a fuel filter.
