Maintenance for Your 1995 Ford Contour

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1995 Ford Contour?

Here’s Why 1995 Ford Contour Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Ford Contour and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Contour. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Contour maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1995 Ford Contour!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ford themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 Contour running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1995 Ford Contour problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ford Contour

Bring your 1995 Ford Contour to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Contour. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1995 Ford Contour. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Contour may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Contour battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Ford Contour could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1995 Ford Contour's engine run smoother. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1995 Contour in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1995 Ford Contour? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford Contour can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Ford Contour steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford Contour's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Ford Contour services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Ford Contour engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ford Contour? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Ford Contour? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1995 Contour is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Ford Contour to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Ford Contour engines.
  •  Why are my Ford dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Ford Contour, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
