What to Know About 2009 Ford Expedition Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Ford Expedition, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Expedition 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 Expedition, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2009 Ford Expedition maintenance schedule!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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 Expedition running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Ford Expedition problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Expedition Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2009 Ford Expedition and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Expedition’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 Ford Expedition. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Expedition may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Expedition battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Expedition stranded. Your Ford Expedition 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 2009 Ford Expedition running newer, longer. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 Expedition in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2009 Ford Expedition.

Routine upkeep for your Ford Expedition 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Ford Expedition steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ford Expedition's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Ford Expedition services, 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 the place to go for 2009 Ford Expedition maintenance.

Don’t wait until something goes wrong with your car. Visit your nearest location for proactive maintenance today.
