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.

Key Ford Service Intervals

Routine services are essential to maintaining your smooth performance on East Peoria roads. Necessary Ford services like oil changes, filter replacements, and tire rotations should happen every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, or around three to four times a year depending on your driving habits. Other essential services at this interval:

Every 7,500 to 10,000 miles: 

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

As your vehicle ages and reaches the 100,000-mile mark, you’ll want to include more extensive checks on top of the routine services performed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. This step in the Ford schedule maintenance guide includes checks on vital components of your Ford sedan, SUV, or truck:

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
