Your Guide to 2018 Ford Expedition Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Ford Expedition to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Expedition could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Expedition maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 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. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Expedition running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Ford Expedition problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Ford Expedition Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2018 Ford Expedition to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2018 Ford Expedition? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford Expedition battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Ford Expedition won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Ford Expedition running newer, longer. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Expedition, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2018 Ford Expedition.

Maintaining your Ford Expedition steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford Expedition's steering system with 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. 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 can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2018 Ford Expedition maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2018 Ford Expedition Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Ford Expedition. Get answers to common Ford Expedition maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Ford Expedition? You know your Ford Expedition 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 use high mileage oil in my Ford Expedition? 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 Expedition engines.
  • Can Ford dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ford Expedition in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
