Ford Recommended Maintenance Intervals

Ford recommends moderate maintenance at 20,000 miles starting with inspecting several primary systems and completing routine maintenance services. We will replace the cabin air filter, rotate and inspect the tires, change the engine oil and filter, and lubricate the non-sealed steering linkage, suspension joints, ball joints, driveshaft, and u-joints. Recommended inspections at 20,000 miles include the engine cooling system with hoses, exhaust system with heat shields, automatic transmission fluid level, rear axle lubricant for non-synthetic only, and braking system.

30,000-mile recommended maintenance includes most of the services and inspections included in the 20,000-mile service. Service does not include replacing the cabin air filter but does include an engine air filter replacement. Ford recommends inspecting the wheels and related components for excessive wear, abnormal noise, looseness, and drag. Service includes checking the steering components, including half-shaft boots and great fittings lubricated. 30,000-mile service also includes a thorough multi-point inspection.

60,000-mile service includes the same inspections and services included in the 30,000-mile service.

This recommended maintenance interval includes everything from the previous intervals plus more. Ford recommends an accessory drive belt inspection, spark plug replacement, orange engine coolant exchange, cooling system inspection, and comprehensive multi-point vehicle inspection using the Ford-certified inspection form.
