Maintenance for Your 2013 Ford E-150

Here’s Why 2013 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, 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. There's no need to guess when it's time to get E-150 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2013 Ford E-150 maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your E-150's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Ford E-150 problems in the future.

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

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Ford E-150 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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 E-150's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2013 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

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 2013 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 2013 E-150. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2013 Ford E-150.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Ford E-150. Get answers to common Ford E-150 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Ford E-150 alignment checked? 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 does my Ford E-150 need high mileage oil? If your Ford E-150 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Ford? 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
