I’d like to thank Peter for answering all my questions on comparisons between different models,options,new or pre- owned, I’d also like to thank Michelle for making the “ paper work “ very easy to get through.

ford service centre in vancouver bcMany modern cars and trucks on our roads today feature power steering. This system eases parking maneuvers and low-speed driving, especially in heavier vehicles. However, over time, components can wear out, which will impact handling. 
 
If you suspect you might have an issue with your Ford’s power steering, here are steps to diagnose the problem:
 
Check the power steering fluid level
A lack of fluid will make it harder to complete turns. If you regularly have to top up the power steering fluid, it could indicate a leak.
 
Inspect the hoses and lines around the power steering pump 
The power steering system is compromised of a pump and numerous seals and hoses. If there are leaks or breaks in the seals, it will impact the performance of the system.
 
Check for loose belts
A loud, screeching sound from the pump is a tell-tale sign of a loose belt in the power steering system. To test for this, simply power up the vehicle’s engine and turn the steering wheel. If you hear a noise, then it's time for a proper inspection.
 
Unaddressed power steering issues not only impact your Ford’s handling, but your safety on Vancouver’s roads. If you have concerns about your vehicle, call our Service Department at Key West Ford to book your maintenance appointment today. Our factory-trained Technicians will give your car or truck the attention it deserves so you can drive with peace of mind.
ford battery service in vancouver bcAfter a busy summer of road trips and weekday adventures, your Ford could likely use some TLC. And one area of key importance is the battery hiding under the hood. With winter’s arrival on its way, fall is the ideal time to ensure your vehicle’s battery is ready for the colder winter ahead. 
 
To help you get prepped, we’ve compiled three battery tips from the experts at Consumer Reports:
 
1. Inspect the battery’s connections to ensure they are snug. If you notice signs of corrosion, safely disconnect the connections and clean them with a battery brush.
 
2. If your battery is more than four-years-old, it’s a good idea to have its load tested once a year. This ensures that the battery can maintain voltage, especially in colder weather. 
 
3. If you are planning on parking your ride throughout the winter, you’ll want to protect your car battery’s life by using a trickle charger. It slowly adds a charge to the battery (hence the term trickle) and does not allow for the normal depletion of the charge that batteries often experience.
 
Should you have any concerns about your vehicle’s battery, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. Our Ford-trained Technicians can test your charging system to see if you require a new battery and recommend the right part for the job.

Vancouver Vehicle Maintenance: Quarterly Inspections for Your Ford

ford service and maintenance vancouver bcOwning a vehicle – whether new or preowned – is an exciting milestone in a person’s life. It’s likely an expense you saved for or are financing each month, so you want to ensure that you are caring for it properly for many years to come. 
 
An important part of vehicle ownership is keeping up with regular maintenance. Not only will this ensure that your car or truck is safe and reliable, but that it’s enjoyable to drive each day and is fuel efficient.
 
To help you keep your Ford in tip-top shape, follow these quarterly inspections from the comfort of your driveway:
 
1. Look and listen for issues: Take your vehicle for a spin around the block and listen for any grinding, whining, knocking or creaking. These sounds are often drowned out by passengers, music and other road sounds, so it’s important to complete this exercise every three months, in case there is an issue that needs addressing. Also, look at your dash to see if any warning lights are on. You'd be surprised by how many drivers ignore these!
 
2. Clean and wax your car: Caring for the interior and exterior of your Ford will keep it looking good for a long time. After vacuuming out the cabin, give all of the surfaces a good wipe down using car care products to protect their finishes, then follow up the exterior with a thorough hand washing and waxing. Don’t forget to clean the windows and mirrors for added visibility.
 
3. Check your windshield wipers and headlights: Speaking of visibility, you’ll want to inspect your wiper blades for breakage or splitting and replace them as needed. If your headlights are burnt out or cracked, those will need replacements as well.
 
After completing these quarterly checks, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. to schedule a maintenance appointment, should you have any concerns about your vehicle. Our team of factory-trained Technicians will get your Ford back into optimal condition for your safety and enjoyment.

Vancouver Vehicle Maintenance: What to Inspect Each Month

ford automotive service centre vancouver bcAs a Ford owner, you made a wise purchase decision when you bought your car or truck from our dealership. We want you to get the most out of your on-road enjoyment for many years to come, which is why we recommend that you keep up with your vehicle’s maintenance. 
 
To help you stay ahead of any repairs or replacements, there are many preventative checks that you can do each month from the comfort of your driveway. Not only will these tips help keep you safer on Vancouver’s roads, but it can save you money by ensuring optimal fuel economy.
 
1. Inspect your tires: Get nice and low to the ground and give all four wheels a thorough once-over, looking for uneven tread wear or embedded objects, like nails, that could cause leaks.
 
2. Check your tire pressure: The best time to check your tire pressure is when your Ford has been parked for at least three hours. Using a tire gauge, make sure that the pressure is within the recommended PSI level, as noted in your Owner’s Guide or on the driver’s door panel. Improperly inflated tires can decrease your vehicle’s fuel economy, so be sure that your levels are within the ideal range.
 
3. Check your fluids: Pop the hood and inspect your engine oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, brake fluid, and windshield washer fluid. If you notice any are low, call our Service Department to book a maintenance appointment.

Ford Service Questions in Vancouver: Can a Dirty Air Filter Stop My Car from Starting?

Tags:
(Posted on Aug 10, 2018 at 04:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford service and maintenance repairs in vancouver bcHave you ever got up close to the grille of your Ford after a summer road trip, only to find the front end covered in bugs and road debris? Pretty gross.

Now, imagine if your vehicle didn’t have an air filter to catch the grime. All of that mess could contaminate the engine and hurt its performance.
 
Thankfully, your Ford is equipped with an air filter to protect your engine from dirt. However, if you let your filter get too filthy, it will starve the engine of air, which the combustion process relies on to make power.
 
But, can a dirty air filter stop your car from starting? Technically, yes. However, it would need to be extremely soiled for the engine to not run. In most cases, drivers with a grimy air filter find that their performance is hampered because the engine can’t take in the right amount of air to power itself. It can also cause poor fuel economy and damage to your spark plugs.
 
The best way to avoid this problem is by keeping up with your Ford’s recommended maintenance intervals, as outlined in your Owner’s Guide. If you are due for an air filter replacement, it’s recommended that you follow through on the repair to ensure optimal performance. And, let’s not forget: a seized engine is much costlier to repair than to replace a filter. Preventative maintenance is the way to go! 
 
To learn more, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. to speak with an advisor.
ford service centre in vancouver bcMost drivers are aware that they need to perform routine maintenance on their car or truck to keep it in top running condition, but sometimes these important tasks can fall to the wayside. However, when your brakes start to squeak, squeal or grind, or you notice that your stopping distance has lengthened, it’s time to have your brake components inspected.
 
Your Ford’s braking system consists of three main parts: the pads, rotors and calipers. When you engage the brake, the master cylinder sends fluid to the calipers, which squeeze together, exerting pressure on the pads. If the calipers are damaged or seized, they cannot do their job effectively.
 
The same is true with your pads. If they are worn, the brake pads cannot make a smooth connection with the rotors, which can lead to uneven wear. Rotors can be costly to replace, therefore, it’s important to make sure that your pads have enough friction material to avoid prolonged damage to your braking system. Everything works in unison – if one component is not functioning correctly, the entire system will suffer. 
 
The best way to ensure optimal brake performance is to keep up with your Ford’s recommended maintenance schedule, which includes regular brake inspections. If a component is due for replacement, our skilled Technicians can advise of the issue before it becomes a costly repair, thus keeping you safer on Vancouver’s roads.

ford service in lower mainland vancouver bcNowadays, vehicles are more sophisticated and complex than ever before. 
 
According to the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), the average car or truck has upwards of 20 computers that help manage everything from the sunroof and anti-lock braking system to the electronically controlled transmission.

ford service centre in lower mainland bcWith summer’s arrival, the days are longer, which means that your Ford’s lighting system may not get used as frequently. But, this important system still needs regular TLC to ensure optimal performance when driving at night. 
 
Over time, bulbs burn out and headlights come misaligned or cracked from everyday use. Here are some tips to keep your lighting system in top shape, while also ensuring your safety on B.C.’s roads:
 
Keep headlights, tail lights and signal lights clean since dirt and debris can reduce your visibility.
 
Make sure that your headlights are properly aimed so that they don’t shine directly into the eyes of other drivers.
 
Always replace headlights in sets of two to ensure an even field of vision.
 
Restore cloudy headlight lenses caused by degradation from the sun’s bright rays for better visibility.
 
Replace bulbs proactively – don’t wait for them to burn out; change them before your safety is compromised.
 
Don’t overdrive your headlights – you should be able to stop inside the illuminated area; anything more than that creates a blind crash area in front of your vehicle.
 
If you can’t remember the last time you changed out your headlights or if you feel like your visibility at night time is poor, now is a good time to consider an upgrade. 
 
For more information, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. to book your headlight maintenance appointment.
ford service centre in vancouver bcFor many Lower Mainlanders, the months of July and August are road trip season. The kids are out of school, you have vacation time to burn and there are plenty of attractions and events to check out across B.C.

But, before 
you load your luggage into the trunk of your Ford, you’ll want to make sure that its components and safety systems are up for the trek.
 
Here’s what to check before you set out on your summer road trip: 
 
Complete a 360-degree visual inspection 
Look for worn tires and wipers, broken lights, chips or cracks in the windshield, and fluid leaks.
 
Check your Ford’s fluids
Check the oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, clutch fluid, power-steering fluid, engine coolant, and windshield washer fluid. If anything is low, dirty, or leaking, contact our Service Department for a maintenance appointment. 
 
Inspect hoses and belts
Look for softness, cracks, nicks, bulges, blistering, or other damage on your engine’s hoses and belts. If you do spot these issues, it’s time for a replacement.
 
Examine your battery
There’s nothing worse than a dead battery while road tripping. Look for signs of wear and corrosion, or if your battery is getting on in the years, consider proactively replacing it to avoid disappointment.  
 
Check your HVAC system
Stay cool behind the wheel and keep your family content by ensuring that your Ford’s HVAC system is in good working order. Before leaving on your trip, test the system for proper air flow and temperature. 
 
Want to learn more about your vehicle's maintenance? Call us to schedule an appointment with our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. Our factory-trained Technicians will give your Ford the treatment it deserves by changing its oil, fixing a faulty hose or belt, and other important maintenance items.

Ford Brake Care Tips for Drivers in Vancouver, B.C.

Tags:
(Posted on Jun 22, 2018 at 06:49AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford maintenance services in vancouver bcYour brakes are one of the most important safety components on your Ford and they deserve frequent attention to ensure their optimal performance. Lack of maintenance and improper driving techniques can put stress on your braking system and cause the parts to wear faster, which can result in a costly repair.

Instead, look after your brakes by following these tips and tricks from our Service Department at Key West Ford:
 
Take it slow
The speed at which your vehicle travels will affect its ability to stop quickly and efficiently. Rather than always having your pedal to the metal, consider slowing down. Stopping from a high speed requires more energy, which also wears down the brake material. 
 
Leave it behind
A heavy, overloaded vehicle can cause unnecessary strain on your brakes when stopping. If you don’t need your cargo box, hockey bag or golf clubs with you, leave them at home. This will also help improve your Ford’s efficiency.
 
Give it a flush
Flushing your brake fluid regularly keeps everything functioning safely, which will help your brake parts last longer. Your Ford’s Owner Guide will outline regular inspection and replacement intervals, so you can always stay on top of this maintenance task.
 
Get them inspected
The best way to spot an issue with your Ford’s braking system is by having it inspected regularly by one of our factory-trained Technicians. By using special diagnostic testing and taking measurements of your brake material, our team is able to detect small problems before they become a larger, more costly repair.
 
Be safe out there on Vancouver’s roads! Call our Service Department today to book your next maintenance appointment.
