2000 Mustang probably has a 3.8 V6. It has a timing chain not a belt. No service is required.

I would suggest inspecting the serpentine belt(s), cooling system hoses, tires, and fill it up with a fresh tank of premium before you start driving it regularly. The belts, hoses, and possibly even the tires may be the originals. HTH. -Jim
