Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Explorer Sport Trac Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Explorer Sport Trac’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Ford Explorer Sport Trac? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Explorer Sport Trac 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.

Your Ford Explorer Sport Trac won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
