Take care of your Ford Crown Victoria 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 Crown Victoria. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Crown Victoria maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2003 Ford Crown Victoria!

Ford knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Crown Victoria's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2003 Ford Crown Victoria problems.

Overview of Essential Ford Crown Victoria Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2003 Ford Crown Victoria for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Crown Victoria's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2003 Ford Crown Victoria? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 prevent premature wear on your 2003 Ford Crown Victoria engine. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 2003 Crown Victoria, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2003 Ford Crown Victoria.

Routine upkeep for your Ford Crown Victoria suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Ford Crown Victoria steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing 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.

If you skip recommended Ford Crown Victoria services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford Crown Victoria cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ford Crown Victoria? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2003 Ford Crown Victoria maintenance and repairs.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Ford Crown Victoria? 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 switch my Ford Crown Victoria to high mileage oil? If your Ford Crown Victoria has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Ford dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ford Crown Victoria 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.
