Your Ford is built for durability, reliability, performance, and safety. To keep it that way, regular maintenance is vital. Gary Crossley Ford in Kansas City, offers you the following maintenance tips to ensure that your vehicle always performs at its best.
1. Adhere to the Maintenance Schedule
Every Ford model comes with a factory-recommended maintenance schedule to ensure that your vehicle continues to perform optimally. If you stick to the service intervals, you will have the peace of mind that your Ford will not let you down.
You will save money on gas and unexpected repairs and your car will last longer and have a higher resale value. You will find the service schedule for your specific Ford model in your owner’s manual, or you ask your Ford technician for information.
2. Regular Oil and Filter Replacements are Crucial
One of the most important maintenance services is regular oil and filter replacements. Engine oil lubricates the moving parts and reduces friction. Regular oil and filter replacements will increase fuel efficiency, extend the life of your engine, and ensure overall vehicle performance. The Ford recommended oil and filter replacements are every 5,000 to 10,000 miles or every six months. Oil and filter replacements are influenced by the weather and road conditions, driving habits, and engine type.
Consult your owner’s manual for the specific oil and filter replacements for your Ford model. A qualified Ford technician will also assist you. If your Ford is equipped with the Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor (IOLM), it’s easy to see when an oil and filter replacement is due. When the IOLM is at 15 percent, the oil needs to be changed. Don’t ignore the monitor and allow it to get to 0 percent to avoid damage to your vehicle’s engine.
3. Fit Top-Quality Replacement Parts
