What Maintenance Does My Ford Need?

When it comes to Ford maintenance & service, DCH Ford of Eatontown is the place to go near Wall Township and Tinton Falls. But regardless of where you do choose to service your vehicle, you’ll want to know when to conduct routine maintenance tasks such as oil changes, filter replacements, and tire rotations. What maintenance does your Ford need? See below for details on common service and maintenance tasks to complete at recommended intervals ranging from every 7,500 miles to every 150,000 miles:

Every 7,500 to 10,000 miles: 

  • Multi-point inspection
  • Lubricate unsealed joints
  • Brake and parking brake inspections
  • Exhaust system and cooling system inspections

After you’ve reached 100,000 miles, if you’ve kept your vehicle long enough to reach this mileage milestone, you’ll want to keep having your regular Ford service completed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. That said, you’ll also want to be sure to include these other important maintenance checks within your Ford maintenance schedule guide as follows:

Every 100,000 miles: Replace spark plugs

Every 120,000 miles: Replace engine air filter

Every 140,000 miles: Inspect accessory drive belts

Every 150,000 miles:

  • Replace accessory drive belts
  • If manual transmission, replace fluid
  • Replace orange coolant
  • Change engine air filter

Extended Ford Service and Warranty Coverage

The Ford maintenance schedule can give you a good idea about what kind of maintenance and service tasks you need to have done ahead of time to be sure your vehicle is always in tip-top shape. But maintenance and service costs over the long run can add up. How can you protect yourself against this without upgrading to a new vehicle? Easy. Choose extended warranty coverage!

While new Ford models offer a 3-year/36,000-mile factory warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, you can also upgrade for extra peace-of-mind via the following extended service warranty plans:

  • BaseCARE: The BaseCARE Service plan covers up to 84 components with additions not normally covered for things like your Ford’s steering, brakes, front suspension, A/C and heating, and even electrical components.
  • ExtraCARE: The ExtraCARE plan covers 113 components related to your technology and convenience features from keyless entry to power window motors.
  • PowertrainCARE: This plan covers 29 components of your Ford within the engine, transmission, RWD, and FWD, or main powertrain system.
