Basic Maintenance That Will Help Your Vehicle Last Longer

At Phil Waterford’s Manteca Ford, we understand that a vehicle can be a significant financial investment. We want to help you preserve your investment in any way we can, including by helping you to maintain your car to the highest of standards. Though there are certainly many different Ford maintenance items you can complete on a vehicle, there are a few essential items that go a long way toward prolonging the life of your car.

Oil Change

Your engine is the heart of your vehicle. Without it, you only have a few plush chairs on wheels parked in your driveway. That's why it's so important to take care of your engine for your Stockton adventures. One of the best ways to do this is to have your oil changed regularly. Engine oil lubricates the moving parts, preventing friction and heat from building up, which could lead to engine failure. Unlike conventional wisdom would suggest, synthetic oil and new engine technology allows you to wait for much longer than 3,000 miles before changing your oil. Be sure to check your owner's manual for the specific interval for your vehicle.

Windshield Wiper Blades

Another important point of maintenance is to replace your windshield wiper blades on a regular schedule. Old wiper blades become cracked and brittle, leading to uneven wiping and lots of noise as the blades move over the windshield. What's more, old wiper blades can cause tiny scratches on your windshield that, over time, can make it difficult to see through your windshield, especially when driving at night or in bright sunlight. Protect your crucial window to the world with new wiper blades.

Tire Rotation

Your tires are your one source of contact with the road. They can also cost a decent amount of money to replace. That's why it's important to take care of them as best you can. By rotating your tires on a schedule, you can ensure that the driving forces created as you drive around Manteca and associated wear patterns are distributed evenly across all four tires. That way, your tires will always be ready to head out of town without a second thought.
