What is the maintenance schedule for the 2014 Ford C-Max?

Here’s Why 2014 Ford C-Max Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Ford C-Max to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your C-Max could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get C-Max maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2014 Ford C-Max!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your C-Max running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2014 Ford C-Max problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford C-Max Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 Ford C-Max and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your C-Max’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2014 Ford C-Max. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Ford C-Max battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your C-Max stranded. Your Ford C-Max won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 2014 Ford C-Max engine. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 2014 C-Max, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2014 Ford C-Max? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford C-Max can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Ford C-Max steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Ford C-Max's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Ford C-Max services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford C-Max cooling, heating, and climate control system.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Ford C-Max? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Ford C-Max? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Ford C-Max? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Ford dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ford C-Max in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
