Ford Maintenance

Routine Ford Maintenance Service in San Antonio

A regularly serviced and maintained Ford can run for years. But do you know what your Ford’s recommended service intervals are? Understanding when your vehicle needs maintenance is the first step to keeping it healthy. With some help from our expert San Antonio Ford mechanics, you’ll be well on your way to seeing your vehicle’s odometer tick into the six-figure range, with no end in sight.

Here’s what is included in a typical Northside Ford maintenance visit:

Oil & Filter Changes – Most modern Ford vehicles are equipped with an Intelligent Oil Life Monitor system, which analyzes the vehicle’s oil to determine when it should be changed. It’s recommended that oil and oil filters be replaced once per year or when the Ford message center displays the need for new oil.

Tire Rotations – To help your tires wear evenly, a tire rotation should be performed each or every other service visit. During your tire rotation, our San Antonio service techs will also inspect the tires’ tread depth.

Multi-point Inspections – We perform thorough inspections of all essential systems and features of your vehicle. Checks are performed on air conditioning, heating, and exhaust systems, as well as brakes, suspensions, ball joints, driveshafts, and more. If a faulty part or issue is uncovered, we will perform any repair or replacement to ensure the vehicle meets Ford’s expectations.
