What to Know About 2011 Ford E-150 Scheduled Maintenance

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. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine E-150 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2011 Ford E-150!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your E-150 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2011 Ford E-150 problems later.

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

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Ford E-150 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2011 Ford E-150. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your E-150 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford E-150 battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 E-150 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2011 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 2011 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 Ford E-150.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford E-150 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Ford E-150 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ford E-150's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Ford E-150 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford E-150 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Ford E-150 radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2011 Ford E-150 maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
