At CDP Diesel & Auto, we understand the importance of keeping your Ford truck running smoothly for years to come. As specialists in Ford truck maintenance and repair, we’ve compiled the ultimate maintenance checklist to help you keep your vehicle in top condition. From routine tasks to more comprehensive inspections, follow our guide to ensure your Ford truck stays reliable on the road.

Regular Maintenance Tasks

  1. Oil ChangeRegular oil changes are essential to keep your Ford truck’s engine running smoothly. Follow Ford’s recommended oil change intervals, typically every 5,000 to 7,500 kilometers, depending on your driving habits and the type of oil used.
  2. Tire Rotation: Rotate your tires every 10,000 kilometers to ensure even wear and prolong tire life. This simple task can also improve fuel efficiency and enhance vehicle handling.
  3. Fluid Checks: Regularly check and top up essential fluids such as coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid. Low fluid levels can lead to component damage and affect vehicle performance.
  4. Air Filter Replacement: Replace your Ford truck’s air filter every 20,000 to 30,000 kilometers to maintain optimal engine performance and fuel efficiency. A clean air filter prevents dirt and debris from entering the engine, prolonging its life.

Comprehensive Inspections

  1. Brake System Inspection: Have your brake system inspected annually or if you notice any signs of brake wear such as squeaking or grinding noises, pulsating brake pedal, or decreased stopping power. Our certified technicians will check brake pads, rotors, calipers, and brake fluid levels to ensure your safety on the road.

  2. Suspension and Steering Inspection: Inspect suspension components such as shocks, struts, and bushings for signs of wear or damage. Worn suspension parts can affect vehicle handling and ride comfort. Additionally, check steering components for looseness or play and have them repaired if necessary.

  3. Transmission Service: Follow Ford’s recommended transmission service intervals to flush old transmission fluid and replace it with fresh fluid. Regular transmission maintenance can prevent costly repairs and ensure smooth gear shifts.
