Ford Scheduled Maintenance Guide

Mechanic with clipboard

The best way to keep your new or used Ford vehicle running at peak performance on East Peoria streets is to be diligent about regular maintenance. Depending on how many miles you’ve put on your vehicle, the Ford services you require may range from an oil change to a spark plugs replacement. Learn more about what services are recommended at specific mileage intervals with Mike Murphy Ford below.

What Ford Service Does My Vehicle Require Next?

In addition to regular oil changes, filter replacements, and tire rotations every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, it’s also smart to get a multi-point inspection, lubricate any unsealed joints, and inspect the braking and parking brake systems, exhaust system, and cooling system while your vehicle is in for service.

This is generally all you should need to do in terms of maintenance until your Ford model hits 100,000 miles. At that point, you should continue with the services listed above every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, but you’ll also want to have these additional Ford services performed at the following intervals:

  • 100,000 Miles
    • Replace spark plugs
  • 120,000 Miles
    • Replace engine air filter
  • 140,000 Miles
    • Inspect accessory drive belts
  • 150,000 Miles
    • Replace accessory drive belts
    • If manual transmission, replace fluid
    • Replace orange coolant
    • Change engine air filter
