Recommended Maintenance Schedule for 1990 Ford Aerostar

Not sure when or if your Ford Aerostar’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 1990 Ford Aerostar Suspension Service?

When you first drove your 1990 Ford Aerostar, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your Aerostar bounces, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1990 Ford Aerostar in for steering and suspension repairs. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and power steering system parts. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your Aerostar suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Ford Aerostar’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Ford Aerostar Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1990 Ford Aerostar’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Ford up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Aerostar’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be indicators of worn Ford Aerostar shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Aerostar’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1990 Aerostar Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Ford's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also let you know when it's time to replace your tires. Uneven tire wear is one sign of steering and suspension system problems, but it can also contribute to more.
  • Why should my Ford Aerostar get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires connect with the road how Ford intended.
  • When does Ford Aerostar power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your Aerostar’s power steering fluid is low, we’ll top it off per Ford's guidelines to help your suspension perform optimally.
