Whether you’ve just purchased a brand-new Ford or a used or certified pre-owned model, you want your vehicle to run like new year after year and mile after mile. The best way to achieve this is to follow the Ford recommended maintenance schedule for your car, truck, or SUV. If you’re new to Ford ownership, Northside Ford is here to help you learn what services must be scheduled at each interval! Read on to explore our detailed Ford scheduled maintenance guide, and discover what type of protection is available to you on New Braunfels roads with the Ford service warranties. 

Ford Service Intervals

The most routine Ford service tasks include oil changes, filter swaps, and tire rotations, which are done about three or four times per year, or every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. At this interval, the Ford scheduled maintenance guide also includes the following service items:

Every 7,500 to 10,000 miles: 

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

By the time your vehicle reaches 10,000 miles on Boerne roads and highways, there are some additional vital tasks that must be completed—in addition to continuing the 7,500–10,000-mile services—to keep your vehicle running safely and smoothly. Take a look below for more information:

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
  • Replace orange coolant
  • Change engine filter
  • Replace transmission fluid (manual transmissions)

Protect Your Vehicle with Extended Ford Service Warranties 

When you purchase your vehicle new, you will enjoy a 3-year/36,000-mile factory warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. If you plan to own your vehicle for more than five years, there are several extended Ford service warranties to consider. Take a look at some of the ways you can feel safe and protected on San Antonio roads:

  • PowertrainCARE: Covers 29 components between the engine and transmission, as well as RWD and FWD systems. 
  • BaseCARE: Covers 84 components across the engine, transmission, RWD or FWD system, steering, brakes, front suspension, A/C and heating, and electrical.
