Maintaining your vehicle

Routine maintenance, such as oil changes, having fluids checked/flushed and tune‐ups, can greatly increase your vehicle's performance and reliability as well as greatly extend its life. Failing to properly service your vehicle can result in increased repair costs, as well as greatly reduce its value for a future sale or trade‐in.

Some people are tempted to skip regular car tune-ups because they're trying to save money on maintenance. Really, though, spending some money to take care of your car every year is one of the best ways to create long-term savings for yourself. When you're getting expert Ford Maintenance on a regular basis, you'll be able to catch, correct, and prevent problems proactively. 

Come visit us for your scheduled maintenance or as soon as you see the first signs of trouble from your vehicle. The maintenance services we perform for our customers in South Florida are fairly priced so you can take care of your vehicle without breaking the bank. Services like the ones listed below will keep your vehicle ready for the long haul.

Oil change

Today's vehicle engines generally have extended oil‐change intervals beyond 3,000 miles, so it is recommended that you consult the specific maintenance schedule interval in your vehicle's owner manual.

At Midway Ford, an oil change is so much more than just an oil change. When you come in for The Works,® you receive a complete vehicle checkup that includes a synthetic blend oil change, tire rotation and pressure check, brake inspection, Multi‐Point Inspection, fluid top‐off, battery test, and filter, belts and hoses check - all for a very competitive price.  This package provides an easy way to keep up with the holistic health of your vehicle.

Fluid levels

Having your fluids topped off is simple and can be performed in just a few minutes. These include oil, radiator, transmission, power steering, windshield washer and brake fluid. 

When you make sure your fluid levels are appropriate, you're making it easier for important parts to operate. Reducing the strain on certain parts will help them last longer and perform better. 


Filters

Your vehicle's filters should be changed every 15K‐30K miles. Most can be inspected and replaced during a routine oil change. These include the engine air filter, oil filter, fuel filter and cabin air filter. 

The parts in your vehicle work a lot better when they're clean, and changing your filters regularly is one of the best ways to make sure things don't get too dirty.

Spark plugs

Your spark plugs should be changed every 100K miles. A bit more complicated than a routine oil change, the time and cost will depend on the year, make and model of your vehicle. Still, this work is worth the effort because new spark plugs will help your Ford stay ready for the next 100K miles.

Belts and hoses

Belts and hoses play an integral part in your vehicle's performance. As belts age, the rubber becomes brittle, causing it to crack. If the belt is showing signs of wear on its outer edge, this is also a sign that it will need to be replaced.

Since coolant temperature is about 200 degrees, the hoses that carry it are extremely important. A belt or hose failure can cause loss of both power steering and the electrical charging system, as well as an overheated engine. If your engine overheats, this can cause the cylinder heads to warp, resulting in a very expensive repair.

Hoses are generally inspected for softness and swelling, hardening, cracks, chafing and heat damage. If any of these issues are detected, your hoses will need to be replaced. An overheated engine is horrible for a car, so we'll make sure all of these parts are in the right shape to complete the cooling process.

Brakes

Brake issues can start out small but worsen over time. Waiting to have them repaired can greatly increase the costs involved. Having your brakes inspected during a routine maintenance visit can help save you both time and money.

Discs should be inspected for rough spots, warping or damage. If they are shiny and show little signs of wear, maintenance is likely not needed. If they are damaged or warped, these parts should be resurfaced or replaced immediately.

Your vehicle has rubber and metal brake lines and both can crack and leak. Our technicians will first examine the rubber hoses to ensure they are soft and don't have cracks. They'll then check the hard metal brake lines for corrosion and leaking. If either is damaged, replacement is recommended.

Batteries

Today's vehicles are loaded with technology. That's why it's more important than ever to ensure your battery operates at peak performance. At Midway Ford, we know exactly what battery is needed for your specific vehicle and can help guide you through what can be a somewhat complex process.

There are few things more frustrated than getting stranded in the South Florida heat because of a dead battery, so test yours regularly.

Tires

Maintaining your tires not only helps keep you safe, it also helps your vehicle run more efficiently and extends the life of the tires themselves. Following these simple steps will help ensure you get the most out of your tires:
  • Have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles – see tire manufacturer for specific recommendations.
  • Check the pressure of all tires, including your spare, at least once a month when the tires are "cold," meaning that the vehicle hasn't been driven for at least three hours. Recommended air pressure for your tires can be found on the placard typically placed on the driver's side doorjamb.
  • Have your tires inspected during every service visit.
