What to Know About 1987 Ford Aerostar Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Ford Aerostar, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Aerostar has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Aerostar maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Ford Aerostar!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Aerostar's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Ford Aerostar problems in the future.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Ford Aerostar. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Aerostar may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford Aerostar battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Aerostar) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford Aerostar won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Ford Aerostar engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Aerostar. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Ford Aerostar.

Routine upkeep for your Ford Aerostar suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Ford Aerostar suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford Aerostar's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Ford Aerostar maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.
