Now that you own a popular Ford model from Van Isle Ford Sales it is time to start making a vehicle maintenance plan to keep this vehicle running like new for years to come. Our expert Service Advisors have all the expertise and maintenance tools necessary to take into account your driving habits and specific operating conditions of your Ford model in order to provide ideal maintenance schedule for the life of your vehicle. These services will include routine vehicle maintenance such as:
Oil and Filter Change
No matter whether you own a Ford truck, car or SUV there will come a time when this vehicle’s lifeblood will become dirty due to regular wear and tear. To take the guesswork out of knowing when to change your vehicle’s oil, most Ford vehicles are equipped with an Intelligent Oil Life Monitor (IOLM), which uses actual engine operating conditions to precisely calculate oil change intervals based on your driving habits.
When it is time to change your oil, the following messages will appear in your message centre:
- ENGINE OIL CHANGE SOON – at 5% of oil life
- OIL CHANGE REQUIRED – at 0% of oil life
Be sure to contact car service centre in Hamilton when you either see these messages or after 4,000-7,999 km during maximum load/towing or after driving in extreme cold or heat or every 12,000-16,000 km under normal commuting conditions.
Transmission Fluid Flush
Automatic transmission fluid contains rust preventatives, anti-foam additives, detergents, anti-wear additives, anti-oxidation compounds, cold-flow improvers, seal conditioners, and friction modifiers. Over time and use, these components will deteriorate causing the moving parts in the engine to cease up, ultimately destroying this engine. If you do a lot of driving under high-stress conditions, like stop-and-go city driving, hauling heavy loads and trailer towing, you should check the transmission fluid level more often. Discuss this type of driving with our knowledgeable service professionals and to find out how often this valuable liquid should be changed.
Tire Rotation and Balance
To reduce premature tire wear and prolong the life of your tires it is important to rotate these large pieces of rubber at certain intervals. During this time the vehicle maintenance experts here at Van Isle Ford will also mount and balance each tire to assure the continued alignment of this vehicle.
Brakes are an important safety system of your vehicle – regular brake inspections can help ensure that your brake parts function at optimum performance for your added peace of mind and safety. During this inspection our trained car servicing technicians will check both the brake pads and rotors for excess wear. If warranted, these parts will be switched out with long-lasting Ford Factory parts.
