How often should I service my 2009 Ford Edge?
You want your Ford Edge to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Edge. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Edge maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Ford Edge!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Edge running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2009 Ford Edge problems.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2009 Ford Edge and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Edge’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 2009 Ford Edge 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Edge battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Edge) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford Edge 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 2009 Ford Edge engine. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 2009 Edge, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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 2009 Ford Edge.
Maintaining your Ford Edge steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Ford Edge 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford Edge's steering system with regular maintenance.
If you fall behind on routine Ford Edge maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Ford Edge’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Ford Edge radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.
