Get Preventive Maintenance for Your Ford
The goal of Preventive Maintenance (PM) is to reduce the likelihood of failure occurring by performing regular maintenance on your vehicle and keep your vehicle working efficiently. At Stephens Automotive, we have been performing PM for years in Des Moines.
Many factors influence a vehicle’s performance and maintenance needs. Some include conditions like extreme weather and salty or dusty environments. The type of driving like stop-and-go traffic in cities or highway driving also has an impact. Another factor is whether you’re regularly hauling heavy cargo or a trailer. There are several other things that can determine how frequently you need to service your vehicle. Pay attention to your manufacturer’s guidelines, and ask for help if you want an expert’s opinion. We are happy to inspect your Ford vehicle and prevent future damages.
Does Your Ford Need an Oil or Filter Change?
The oil in your engine has a vital role. It keeps your engine components lubricated and friction low between parts. This helps to keep the engine cool. Oil also takes harmful debris away from the engine and catches it in the oil filter. Stephens Automotive is eager to change your oil and filters as needed to keep your Ford running smoothly.
Your oil should be changed every 3,000-5,000 miles or about every 3 months. Oil filters should be changed every or every other time you get your oil changed. You need to change your oil regularly to avoid wearing out different parts of the engine. Oil helps the engine work efficiently and properly, so without useful oil, your engine will suffer. Avoid expensive service needs in the future by routinely changing your oil and oil filter.
Check your Ford’s Wheels and Tires
Your tires are what make driving, steering, and braking possible. Since they connect your vehicle to the road, it’s vital to make sure that they are in good shape. Some regular maintenance that your tires need includes tire rotations, balancing, and alignment. These things can even out the wear on your tires and help them last longer. The tread on your tires can wear out sooner if your tires aren’t inflated or rotated according to manufacturer recommendations. Get your tire maintenance done at Stephens Automotive in Des Moines, IA to keep your Ford in good shape.
