Be good to your Ford, and your Ford will be good to you. And, it doesn’t take a lot of work to keep your vehicle in fine shape. All you really need to do is to visit a Ford mechanic periodically and make sure to address these key areas:

Oil

Even if you don’t know much about cars, you probably know how important oil is. It keeps the moving parts in the engine lubricated, so it’s vital for operation and performance. Depending on your vehicle and which kind of oil you use, it should be changed every 3,000 to 6,000 miles.

Tires

In order to help them wear evenly, tires need to be rotated regularly. A good rule of thumb is to have this done every time you get your oil changed. And even with diligent rotations, tires probably won’t last much longer than 20,000 miles, so if you have an older set, keep a close eye on the treads.

Filters

There are a number of filters in your car, including for the oil, engine, and cabin. To make sure they are doing their job properly, they need to be cleaned. Eventually, they’ll get so dirty that they will have to be replaced.

Fluids

Aside from the oil, there are many other fluids that play an essential role in your vehicle. The transmission, brake, and power steering fluids need to be checked to ensure they are at the right levels. You also can’t forget about anti-freeze, especially during the winter.

These are only some of the areas that need regular attention. To make sure your entire car is taken care of, make an appointment with the service center at our Ford dealership near Oscoda.
