Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2009 Ford E-150

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2009 Ford E-150?

Here’s Why 2009 Ford E-150 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Ford E-150, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your E-150. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2009 Ford E-150!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your E-150's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Ford E-150 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Ford E-150 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2009 Ford E-150 and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your E-150. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2009 Ford E-150 be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your E-150 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford E-150 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your E-150 stranded. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Ford E-150 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 E-150. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2009 Ford E-150.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Ford E-150? 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 E-150 to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Ford E-150? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Ford dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Ford E-150, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
