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

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2001 Ford Crown Victoria? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 Crown Victoria battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Crown Victoria) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 2001 Ford Crown Victoria running newer, longer.
