When Should I Schedule Ford Maintenance?
At different points during your vehicle’s lifetime, certain maintenance is required in order to maintain the health of the vehicle. Help your Ford stay on the road for as long as possible by always making sure you stay up-to-date with the recommended Ford maintenance schedule. If your Ford is approaching any of these milestones, reach out to your local New England Ford Authorized Service Center to schedule a service appointment.
Every 7,500 Miles
The first milestone in your Ford maintenance plan is the 7,500-mile mark. Every six months or 7,500 miles, Ford Motor Company recommends having your oil changed. If your Ford is equipped with an Intelligent Oil Life Monitor, it will probably alert you around this time in your vehicle’s life. Once you reach 12 months and it is time to receive your next oil change, be sure to have your oil filter changed, as well. We also recommend having your wheels aligned and tires rotated with each oil change to evenly distribute any wear.
Every 10,000 Miles
It’s time for the first big checkup in your Ford maintenance schedule. There are a few different components of your vehicle that should be inspected every 10,000 miles, including the cooling system and hoses, exhaust system and heat shields, brake systems, steering components, and more. Schedule a multi-point inspection at your local Ford service center every 10,000 miles to ensure that all the functions of your Ford are still working properly.
Every 20,000 Miles
In addition to scheduling another checkup for your vehicle, it’s time to replace the cabin air filter in your Ford. You should continue to have this checked every 20,000 miles as part of your routine Ford maintenance schedule.
Every 30,000 Miles
At this point, you should be in the habit of completing your 10,000-mile checkup. It is now also time to replace your Ford’s engine air filter. This will help ensure that any debris is removed before it causes major damage to your engine. We recommend having your engine air filter checked every 20,000 miles from this point on.
At 100,000 Miles
Congratulations on giving your Ford the continuous care and attention required to meet this monumental milestone! Your Ford can run for another 100,000 miles if you keep up-to-date with the Ford recommended maintenance schedule. Additionally, 100,000 miles is a good time to replace your vehicle’s spark plugs, inspect accessory drive belts, replace the cabin air filter, and change the Ford Orange Specialty Revitalizer Engine Coolant.
At 150,000 Miles
After many amazing years behind the wheel of your Ford, it has become one of your most beloved possessions. You can keep your precious Ford running at its best, schedule a Ford maintenance appointment to replace the timing belt, change the front and rear axle lubricant, change the transfer case fluid, change automatic transmission and transaxle fluid and filter, and replace accessory drive belts if you have not yet. This is also another good time to change the Ford Orange Specialty Revitalizer Engine Coolant.
