Here’s Why 2001 Ford Excursion Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Ford Excursion and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Excursion has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Excursion maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2001 Ford Excursion!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Excursion perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2001 Ford Excursion problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Excursion Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2001 Ford Excursion 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Excursion’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2001 Ford Excursion. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford Excursion battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Ford Excursion could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 2001 Ford Excursion running newer, longer. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 2001 Excursion, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2001 Ford Excursion? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Ford Excursion steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, perform Ford Excursion 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 Excursion's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Ford Excursion maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Ford Excursion engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Ford Excursion radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2001 Ford Excursion maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2001 Ford Excursion Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2001 Ford Excursion. Get answers to common Ford Excursion maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Ford Excursion? 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 use high mileage oil in my Ford Excursion? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Ford Excursion? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Ford dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ford Excursion in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
