1984 Ford EXP Maintenance Schedule

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1984 Ford EXP?

Here’s Why 1984 Ford EXP Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Ford EXP to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your EXP. 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 EXP maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1984 Ford EXP!

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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your EXP running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1984 Ford EXP problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Ford EXP Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1984 Ford EXP to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your EXP's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1984 Ford EXP be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Ford EXP 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your EXP stranded. Your Ford EXP won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1984 Ford EXP engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1984 EXP. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1984 Ford EXP.

Routine upkeep for your Ford EXP suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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, provide Ford EXP steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Ford EXP's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Ford EXP maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford EXP cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Ford EXP radiator? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1984 Ford EXP maintenance.

1984 Ford EXP Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1984 Ford EXP. Get answers to common Ford EXP maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Ford EXP alignment checked? You know your Ford EXP better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Ford EXP to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Ford EXP engines.
  • 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 EXP to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
