What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2004 Ford Excursion?
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 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Excursion, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2004 Ford Excursion maintenance schedule!
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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Excursion running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2004 Ford Excursion problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2004 Ford Excursion 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. 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.
Could your 2004 Ford Excursion be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Excursion may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Excursion battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. 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.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2004 Ford Excursion 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 2004 Excursion. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2004 Ford Excursion.

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.
