What to Know About 2010 Ford Escape Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Ford Escape and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Escape. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Escape maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2010 Ford Escape!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 Escape running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2010 Ford Escape problems.

Overview of Essential Ford Escape Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Ford Escape and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Escape. 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 2010 Ford Escape. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Ford Escape battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Escape stranded. Your Ford Escape 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 2010 Ford Escape 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 2010 Escape. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2010 Ford Escape.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford Escape 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 Escape 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. Components within your Ford Escape's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Ford Escape services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 Escape’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ford Escape? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2010 Ford Escape maintenance and repairs.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2010 Ford Escape. Get answers to common Ford Escape maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Ford Escape alignment checked? You know your Ford Escape better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Ford Escape? If your Ford Escape 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? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Ford Escape to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
