What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1999 Ford Expedition?
You want your Ford Expedition to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Expedition. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Expedition, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1999 Ford Expedition maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Expedition running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1999 Ford Expedition problems.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Ford Expedition for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Expedition'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 1999 Ford Expedition. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Expedition 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Expedition stranded. Your Ford Expedition 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 prevent premature wear on your 1999 Ford Expedition engine. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 Expedition, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1999 Ford Expedition.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford Expedition 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Ford Expedition suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Ford Expedition's steering system require regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Ford Expedition services, 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford Expedition cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ford Expedition? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1999 Ford Expedition maintenance.
So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
