How often should I service my 1989 Ford Country Squire?
When it comes to your Ford Country Squire, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Country Squire. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Country Squire, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1989 Ford Country Squire maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Country Squire's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1989 Ford Country Squire problems.
Bring your 1989 Ford Country Squire to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Country Squire. 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.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Ford Country Squire? 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Country Squire 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 Country Squire won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Ford Country Squire running newer, longer. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 Country Squire 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Ford Country Squire.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ford Country Squire's steering and suspension system.
