Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1985 Ford Escort

Why Is Ford Escort Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Ford Escort’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. In an alignment service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as Ford intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Ford specifies for your vehicle, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 1985 Ford Escort, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Ford recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Ford Escort

It's a good idea to have your Ford Escort alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1985 Ford Escort: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your Escort if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for Ford Escort Cost?

On a budget? Ford Escort wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.

Answers to Ford Escort Alignment Questions

  •  Where's the "alignment light" on my 1985 Ford Escort? Pay close attention to changes in your steering.

If you notice a change in how your car handles while driving, call on the techs at Firestone Complete Auto Care to check your Escort alignment.
  • What can knock my Ford Escort out of alignment? Potholes and uneven roads can knock your car out of alignment, so stay aware of the road ahead and adjust your speed (or avoid these obstacles whenever it’s safely possible).
