In the owners manual of the 2014 Focus I drive daily it basically says "change the oil when the warning light comes on."

Seriously.....it says that.

i didnt put 2 and 2 together but the alt noise and the flickering only at idle makes sense. you could make out with a solid fx4. just go through and swap every fluid just to be sure, and it'll take care of you. could even sell stuff like the bed rails if you dont want them. change under the seat also brings down the price after the fact

transmission fluid is brand new. Looks like they just put a new filter (i hope) and pan seal on it. Oil was just changed according to the sticker in the window. Front pinion seal and rear pinion seal are starting to leak so i'll have to change those but with my discount those parts are gonna be cheap. Bedrails are coming off and i plan on selling them.
