Your Guide to 2004 Ford E-150 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Ford E-150 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your E-150 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your E-150, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2004 Ford E-150!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ford themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your E-150 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2004 Ford E-150 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford E-150 Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2004 Ford E-150 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your E-150's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2004 Ford E-150 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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 E-150 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty E-150) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford E-150 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2004 Ford E-150 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2004 E-150. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2004 Ford E-150.
