    I have a 2013 PP SHO that just hit 100k on the odometer. I am maniacal about maintenance on the car changing oil every 5k. Also changed trans and PTU fluids. No mods other than CAI. I’ve read many posts about catastrophic failures. Don’t want my car to turn into a giant paperweight. What should I be concerned about blowing up on my car and what can I do to prevent it? Would love to drive this car another year or two and give to my son when he can drive.

    As with all Fords, fluids would be at the top of my list. The more aggressively a vehicle is driven, the more it falls under Ford's Special Operating Conditions, tho Ford does not say a word about it :) And with forced induction vehicles, always best to assume S.O.C. anyway.

    Coolant and engine oil are vital to the water pump.

    PTU and RDU fluid for the AWD system.

    Transmission fluid for the ... transmission.

    Power steering fluid ... nah, let's skip this one :nut:

    Brake fluid ... yes this still should be flushed regularly, tho hardly anyone mentions it anymore.

    Service the brakes - de-rust and grease the caliper slide pins regularly.

    Check shocks n struts. They do start leaking at some point. If needing replacement, replace strut mounts as well. Motorcraft is #1 quality. If the roads are relatively good, you can go with coilovers ...

    Check suspension - tie rods, control arms, and sway bar end links. Bushings and mounts too. There are now upgrades available for the torque mounts - adds a bit of NVH, but delivers loads of performance.

    Just a few things you could do!

    Going forward, Fords recommended brake fluid service is every 3 years.

    I bought a nifty brake fluid checker off of Amazon. It tells you how much water is in the brake fluid.

    Thanks everybody for the replies. I figured that water pump and timing chain were going to top the list. Any idea on cost for getting both done at the dealer?
