What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1991 Ford Escort?
When it comes to your Ford Escort, 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 Escort. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Escort maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1991 Ford Escort 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Escort perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1991 Ford Escort problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1991 Ford Escort and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Escort. 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.
Could your 1991 Ford Escort 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 Escort may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Escort 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 Escort) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford Escort won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 Ford Escort engine. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1991 Escort in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 1991 Ford Escort.
Maintaining your Ford Escort steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, perform Ford Escort suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ford Escort's steering and suspension system.
Without routine Ford Escort maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Ford Escort engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Ford Escort radiator? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1991 Ford Escort maintenance.
