Your Guide to 2020 Ford Transit Connect Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Ford Transit Connect to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Transit Connect has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Transit Connect maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2020 Ford Transit Connect!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ford themselves. 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; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Transit Connect perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2020 Ford Transit Connect problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Transit Connect Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 Ford Transit Connect for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Transit Connect's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2020 Ford Transit Connect? 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 Transit Connect battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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. 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 Transit Connect could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Ford Transit Connect engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2020 Transit Connect. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2020 Ford Transit Connect.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford Transit Connect 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 Transit Connect 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 Transit Connect's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Ford Transit Connect 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. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Ford Transit Connect’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Ford Transit Connect radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2020 Ford Transit Connect maintenance.
