Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2005 Ford Expedition

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2005 Ford Expedition?

Here’s Why 2005 Ford Expedition Scheduled Maintenance Matters

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. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Expedition, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2005 Ford Expedition!

Ford knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Expedition's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2005 Ford Expedition problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Expedition Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2005 Ford Expedition to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Could your 2005 Ford Expedition be ready for a new battery? 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). 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Expedition battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Expedition) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford Expedition could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2005 Ford Expedition engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2005 Expedition. 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 2005 Ford Expedition? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Ford Expedition steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Ford Expedition 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 Expedition's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Ford Expedition maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Expedition engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Ford Expedition radiator in need of replacement? 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 your one-stop shop for 2005 Ford Expedition maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
