A lot depends on your vehicle history, what kind of vehicle you have and what engine and transmission your vehicle is equipped with. If this information is not provided, it is hard to say what your vehicle needs at 100,000 miles.
Your engine computer has turned the Service Engine Soon light on because there is a malfunction in one of the many systems that are monitored by the computer. The only way to find out which one, or WHY the light is on, is to scan your engine computer to find out why it has turned the light on. There will be a fault code stored in your computer. This light coming on has very little to do with maintenance schedules. It has more to do with SYSTEM MALFUNCTIONS. (Although many system malfunctions CAN be prevented by performing the scheduled maintenance.)
owner-reviewers on the Edmunds automotive website gave the CR-V a
reliability rating of 1 to 5 out of of 10, citing the vehicle's
expensive maintenance after passing 75,000 miles. On the AutoBeef
website, owners who reviewed the vehicle
reported a variety of AC and heater, electrical, engine, suspension and
transmission problems to be the main issues of the vehicle, with other
AC and Heater Problems
The most numerous issue faced by CR-V owners, air conditioning and
heater problems plague even low-mileage CR-Vs. Most owners report an
end blowing off the AC compressor, at an average of 76,900 miles.
Repairs cost an average of $2,660, but in some cases cost as much as
CR-V owners also cite electrical problems, prominently to locking and
window mechanisms and interior accessories. Reported everywhere from
45,000 miles to over 100,000 miles, owners say that the doors won't
unlock with the factory remote, the keys won't unlock the car, and that cigarette lighters and window buttons fail. Average repair cost per issue came out to $250.
Owners report irregular idle patterns, catalytic converter failure,
oxygen sensor failure and excessive engine oil use in CR-V engines.
Occurring under or around 100,000 miles, these problems average roughly
$2,500 to correct.
The two most common suspension problems are cracked ball joints and
misaligned struts, which can cause the vehicle to pull to one side.
Most problems occurred between 60,000 and 100,000 miles, and cost $300
or more on average to repair.
This is Toyota's scheduled maintenance for the RAV4 at 100,000 miles...

Replace every 50,000 miles/60 months thereafter. Refer to "Engine Coolant" in the "Explanation of Maintenance Items" section in the back of this guide for more information.
Hello, according to Snap-On / Shopkey / General Drivers,
For your 2004 Ford Taurus:
1. Inspect Accessory Drive Belt
2. Perform Multi-Point Inspection (Recommended)
3. Replace Engine Coolant
4. Replace Engine Oil
5. Replace Engine Oil Filter
6. Replace PCV Valve
7. Replace Spark Plugs
8. Rotate Tires.
This is going by the general consensus from Snap-On tools and Ford Motor Co. Hope this helps :)
Obviously, the front three are fairly easy to reach. The rear three are the real problem. The easiest way to do the rear three is to jack the front of the vehicle up, crawl underneath until you can see the back of the engine from the ground, get real comfortable, making sure the engine and exhaust are cooled down, reach your arm up and pull the boots, very carefully.... then replace the spark plugs. You will not be able to see the plugs themselves, but this seems to be the easiest way to change them. Make sure you have a swivel spark plug socket and extensions and replace the spark plugs with platinum plugs so you can get another 100,000 miles and make sure you have anti seize so you can remove the plugs again in the future. The golden rule is that the engine has platinum plugs in there now and there good for 100,000 mile, if there are no misfire try not to change them unless you think your close to the end of the spark plug life or the check engine light came one to indicate that there are misfires. Good luck and hope this helps.
