My 97 F150 has approx. 70,000 miles on it. I just had to get a tune-up
on it.
I thought they were supposed to be able to go to 100,000 before any
tune-up was necessary. All the mileage is basically highway. Has
anyone experienced a similiar problem with their F150?

Well, it is not really a "problem". I never trust that a vehicle can go
100,000 miles without a tune up(plug change). Yes, they "can" go that long
but should they? If you let it go 100,000 miles you will have a heck of a
time getting those wires off and the plugs out. I replaced my plugs at
60,000 miles and they were shot. They were already worn out, which I
expected them to be. My plug wires however did go bad too soon, they went
out at about 78,000.

FYI I recently bought a second-hand Cavalier w 3L V6 with 127K miles on it,
got it for a steal because there was a high speed miss and previous owner's
mechanic had said it would take a new module, wires and some sensors
(estimate $1000 to repair) I pulled the plugs they had eroded to about
ninety five plus thou vise the fifty thou as specked. I regaped the plugs
and all is well! The moral is most of the time today all u need to do is
check / gap the plugs for a tune up!

I'm starting to notice a slight rough idle... I've got 60,000 on my
'97, mostly highway, but with lots of passing! I will be getting it tuned
soon. Since the computer runs the show, and I don't have any codes, is it
worth having the dealer do it, or just change the plugs and wires?

Does the dealer 'scope' it, or do they just go off the computer
readout?
