How often should I service my 1998 Ford Crown Victoria?

Here’s Why 1998 Ford Crown Victoria Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Ford Crown Victoria to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Crown Victoria has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Crown Victoria maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria maintenance schedule!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Crown Victoria perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1998 Ford Crown Victoria problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Crown Victoria Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Crown Victoria’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria? 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 Crown Victoria battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 Crown Victoria won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria running newer, longer. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 Crown Victoria, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ford Crown Victoria's steering and suspension system.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Ford Crown Victoria’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
