Your Guide to 1993 Ford Escort Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Ford Escort to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Escort could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1993 Ford Escort!

Ford knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Escort perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1993 Ford Escort problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Escort Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1993 Ford Escort to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Escort's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1993 Ford Escort. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford Escort battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Escort stranded. Your Ford Escort won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1993 Ford Escort running newer, longer. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1993 Escort in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1993 Ford Escort? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford Escort can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford Escort's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Ford Escort maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

1993 Ford Escort Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1993 Ford Escort. Get answers to common Ford Escort maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Ford Escort 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 should I switch my Ford Escort to high mileage oil? If your Ford Escort 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 Escort to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
