Key West Ford’s sales team ( my main contact Peter Olson) were a pleasure to deal with when I recently went looking to replace my 8 year old F150 pick up. Peter was very thorough in showing and explaining the dealerships new and pre owned vehicles as well as what new vehicles were available at other lower mainland dealers. I left the dealership to think about my options returning a few days later and purchased a great 1 year old ,well optioned pick up , exactly what I was looking for ! 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.

Maintaining Ford Vehicles: The Need for Proper Care

Tags:
(Posted on Jan 29, 2013 at 03:56PM by Lee Byard)

Your car is without flaw. The engine will forever work; the tires will remain steady in their treads; and every mechanical element will stay precise, sparing you the worries of high bills and automotive shop repairs.

This is a common dream. It never, however, becomes a reality.

Every vehicle (even Ford options) is a victim of time, with its components weakening with use and years. 

Extending the life of a car--and eliminating worries of costly body shop repairs--is possible, though. You simply must follow a maintenance schedule.
 
Manufacturer Maintenance: Understanding the Schedule

Exceptional performance demands exceptional care: this is the cornerstone of Ford car maintenance and a manufacturer schedule helps to make that maintenance less confusing. 

Every element--from filters to rotors, cooling systems to ignition switches--requires constant, and thorough, support. Knowing when and how to apply that support can prove problematic, however. Many drivers lack a mechanic’s perspective, are unable to determine when their vehicles need more than gasoline.

A manufacturer schedule seeks to simplify the process. It details the requirements of every model, highlighting every change, replacement and rotation. This streamlines maintenance for the novice and offers step-by-step instructions.

Following the Schedule: The Importance of Care

Your car is more than a collection of pipes and valves. It’s instead a necessity. Losing it to a sputter of spark plugs, therefore, is unacceptable.

This is why following a maintenance schedule is important: you must routinely check, adjust and fix your vehicle. This is the only way to avoid sudden failure. 

The Maintenance List: Common Fixes

Each Ford manufacturer schedule is unique, determined by a car’s model, make and trim. There are certain similarities to find, however, and many of these can be accomplished at home:

Oil Change: An oil change is recommended for every 3000 miles. 

Air Filter Replacement: An air filter should be replaced after 20,000 miles.

Tire Rotation: Each tire should be rotated to encourage even treading. This should be done every 5000 miles for vehicles that are driven daily.

Brake Pads: Brake pads should never be less than 1/8 of an inch thick. They should be checked once a month for measuring.

Engine Flush: An engine flush is a removal of excess fluids. It is recommended for every 35,000 miles.

Utilizing these strategies helps to keep every Ford vehicle running as it’s meant to. Choose the perfect Key West Ford option and then give it the care it deserves.
