Getting your 2005 E-150’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Brake problems include unusual noises, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Ford E-150 like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Generally speaking, automakers like Ford suggest that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 2005 Ford E-150 brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
When should you change the brake pads on your 2005 Ford E-150? It largely depends on where and how you drive. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your E-150 right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Ford E-150 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your E-150, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Ford’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Ford E-150. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. Our technicians work to prevent more brake damage.
