1987 Ford EXP Maintenance Schedule

Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1987 Ford EXP

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1987 Ford EXP?

Here’s Why 1987 Ford EXP Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Ford EXP to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your EXP could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your EXP, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1987 Ford EXP maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ford themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your EXP's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1987 Ford EXP problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ford EXP

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Ford EXP for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 EXP'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 1987 Ford EXP. 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. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty EXP) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford EXP won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Ford EXP running newer, longer. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 EXP, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Ford EXP? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford EXP can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Ford EXP steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford EXP's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Ford EXP 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 EXP engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ford EXP? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Ford EXP. Get answers to common Ford EXP maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Ford EXP? 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 does my Ford EXP need high mileage oil? If your Ford EXP 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!
  •  Why are my Ford dashboard lights on? 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.
