Importance of Ford Maintenance


We take our vehicles for granted every day, forgetting that under the hood a complex system of parts, liquids, and gasses are responsible for getting us from point A to point B, and then later to point C. In other words, we rely on our vehicles to function on a daily basis, but we fail to appreciate the marvel of modern automotive engineering, and in failing to appreciate our vehicles, we fail to provide adequate maintenance. Nothing lasts forever, as the saying goes, and this famous dictum is all the more apropos in the world of vehicles. Extreme temperature swings, rapid-fire combustion, moving metal parts, and much more wage a war of attrition on our vehicles, which means eventually everything, or almost everything will need either a replacement or a tune up. If you delay vehicle maintenance, thinking perhaps one more week would be okay, you risk causing further damage and increasing the cost of repair. More importantly, you risk your life and the lives of your passengers because a poorly maintained vehicle is an unsafe vehicle.

We have established the importance of regular Ford maintenance, but what exactly does your vehicle need? When should you seek help from automotive professionals? Most vehicles come with an owner’s manual, a small booklet often located in the glove compartment, or perhaps the trunk. In this booklet, you will likely find a recommended service schedule that tells you when, based on mileage or time elapsed, your vehicle will likely need certain services. If you have trouble finding the owner’s manual, just give our team a call, tell us the model and year of your vehicle, and we can tell you when to come in for your next maintenance appointment.

Services Performed at Our Ford Maintenance Shop


The services we perform when you visit our automotive center will largely depend on the condition of your vehicle and the date of the previous servicing. As a Renton Ford Maintenance Shop, one of the more common services we offer is your basic oil change. Oil is the life blood of your engine and serves to lubricate moving parts, reduce heat, and clear away dirt and grime. Over time the lubricating properties of the oil break down, and it accumulates more and more foreign particles, which is why, for the health of your engine, you need to regularly check and change the oil.


Replace a Timing Belt at Our Renton Maintenance Shop


The timing belt is another component that might need replacement. If the parts under the hood of your vehicle are an orchestra, the timing belt is like the conductor keeping everyone in rhythm. More specifically, in many engines the timing belt prevents the pistons from colliding with the intake and exhaust valves. Should the timing belt fail during vehicle operation there are serious consequences, which is why you should get a replacement at regular intervals to prevent costly damage. Or perhaps you need a tire rotation. The tires on your vehicle, for a variety of different reasons, do not wear evenly. To both improve the performance of your vehicle and extend the life of your tires, you should occasionally visit our team for rotation.

Drivers who need a Renton Ford Maintenance Shop may have questions or concerns about the check engine light. In general the check engine light indicates a problem with the emissions system, and a common culprit is a failing oxygen sensor. Internal combustion vehicles use a very precise ratio of fuel and air to operate, and the oxygen sensor helps maintain this balance. When the oxygen sensor fails, you will likely experience lower gas mileage, in addition to other problems. Or you could simply have a faulty gas cap that needs replacement. Whatever the reason for you automotive problems, we will find the solutions.
