Re: Feels like there's a misfire, but no codes.

I would recommend changing the Gas filter to OEM Motocraft only, and start using top tier gasoline like BP did this when I picked up my Freestyle with 88k made a big difference in performance and MPG.

Re: to keep or not? 2005 Ford Freestyle SE 65,775 miles

What I had done was not rubberized it's exactly what Ford used originally in the rear wheel wells.

Re: to keep or not? 2005 Ford Freestyle SE 65,775 miles

I recently had some cracking that was peeling off in the rear wheel wells , I went to my local body shop and for a reasonable price they re-sprayed undercoating also did the underside by the rear suspension.

Well worth doing especially if you life with cold weather and salty roads.

Re: to keep or not? 2005 Ford Freestyle SE 65,775 miles

My mechanic recommended only doing a drain and fill of fluid and not replacing any of the filters his option was if it isn't broke leave it alone.

My transmission was just fine so I didn't want to open a can of warms by doing the filters.

It's up to you I just air on the side of caution.
