Usually around 90,000 miles is a good time to change this component. I see you are approaching this mark with 88,000 and counting so, i would prepare for this replacement soon.

They are normally changed as routine maintenance. It will let you know. Is the engine acting up? If not, No worry. If it is a timing belt, It is recomended at 60,000 miles.

Wheel bearings


Well,I like Auto-Zone and other discount stores,but for critical parts I'd buy the original Ford/Mercury or NAPA parts.
I'm talking timing chain or belt and gears,fuel pumps,oil pumps, and in general critical parts hard to replace.
If it's really wearing out bearings badly, you might have a bent or deformed axle,which is not being detected. Get the axle checked out before installing another bearing on it.
That's all I can think of right now.Hope it might help you! don-ohio (:^)

Now. i think the interval is 75 to 80 miles for belts. double check that it doesn't have a timing chain. if it has the 2.4 ltr eng than you have timing chain and around 120k is fine.
