Ford F-150 Maintenance Schedule and Costs

Ford F-150 Maintenance Schedule and Costs

If you use your F150 for daily driving, staying on top of the recommended maintenance is important. This step will guarantee that your truck remains in top shape, lasts for many years, and operates at its peak performance. Bennett Dunlop Ford recommends to their friends and neighbours in Regina that they regularly maintain their F-150s and strictly follow the recommended service schedules. To help, we’ll cover F-150 maintenance tips and the service schedules.

 

For the F-150, maintenance costs amount to $2,007 in the first year and increase to $2,181 by the fifth year. It’s a chunk of change in anyone’s language. Still, you can do a great deal to reduce the probability of a major repair and reduce maintenance costs by ensuring that you look after your F-150 meticulously. 

 

F-150 Maintenance Checks At Home

 

We all lead very busy lives with work, family responsibilities, and dozens of other obligations, so maintenance on your car can fall by the wayside. These simple maintenance items are more important than you think, so carrying out these few checks is important. They could help you catch a problem early and save you hundreds of dollars in repair costs.

 

Read Your Owner’s Manual.

 

This may sound strange to include in a maintenance check, but there is a great deal of valuable information in the owner’s manual and many tips for keeping your F-150 in great condition.

 

There is information on the correct oils and gas to use and how to diagnose problems. These will help you understand your vehicle and know when something is not as it should be.

 

Fill up with the correct octane-rated fuel.

 

High-octane-rating fuels are not necessarily the best option for your engine, and neither is the lowest rating. The owner’s manual will give you the best octane rating for your engine.

 

Check your tyre pressures.

 

This is a vital check, not only for maintenance but also for safety reasons. If your F-150 does not have a tyre pressure monitoring system, invest in a tyre pressure gauge and check your pressure every month.

 

Rotate your tyres regularly.

 

Each time you have your F-150 serviced, have the tyres rotated as well. This will ensure the wear is even over all the tyres, extending the tyre life. Ask for the wheel alignment and tyre balance to be checked at least twice a year.

 

Learn what your F-150’s warning lights mean.

 

Learn what each of the F-150’s warning lights means. If one comes on, is this something you can drive to the nearest dealer with, or is it something saying stop right now?

 

Check your F-150’s fluid levels regularly.

 

The fluids in your car are vital for its smooth operation. Regularly check the radiator level, brake fluid, window washer fluid, and oil levels. If any are below the minimum level, get them topped up.

 

Check the belts and hoses.

 

Take the time to look at the belts and hoses in the engine bay. Are any showing signs of wear or fraying? If so, make an appointment to get them changed immediately.

 

Check the battery.

 

Inspect the battery terminals. Is there any buildup or corrosion around them? If so, take the time to clean the corrosion, then grease it with petroleum jelly to prevent further corrosion.

 

Replace windscreen wipers.

 

If you haven’t used your wipers for a while, run your fingers over them and make sure they are not torn or fraying.

 

Keep your F-150 clean.

 

Keeping your truck clean will extend the life of the paintwork, as the remains of bugs, tree sap, and road dirt will not have a chance to discolour the paint.

 

Scheduled Services

 

Having done all you can to keep your F-150 in tip-top condition, bring it into the workshop for regular services according to the service schedule.

 

Services are 8,000 kilometres apart, with the schedule in the service booklet accompanying your Owner’s Manual. Ford strongly advises that you adhere to the schedule and not fall into the trap of putting services off because of work pressures. In the long run, this will damage your vehicle, and you could face expensive repair bills and a truck off the road for a long time.

 

Your F-150 is a Valuable Tool

 

Your F-150 is one of the most valuable tools in your toolbox, so care for it properly, and it will reward you with years of trouble-free motoring. We invite all F-150 owners in the Regina area to book their next service with Bennett Dunlop Ford. Our skilled technicians will ensure your truck is maintained with OEM parts and returned safe for use.
