With spring well underway and summer just around the corner, our team at Preston Ford, your Annapolis Ford dealer, wants to encourage our customers to begin preparing their Ford for the warm weather. We believe you should have your vehicle periodically inspected to ensure that it operates at full capacity, regardless of what the current season is. You also can secure the safety of yourself and your passengers by getting your Ford all the proper maintenance and repairs.
It always is a great idea to take your Ford to the service department at Preston Ford, your local Ford dealer in Maryland, for all of its seasonal work. There also are various measures you can take on your own at your home to maintain how your Ford operates. One practice you can do is inspecting the fluids of your Ford car, truck or SUV by taking out the dipstick and looking at where the fill line is placed. If you have problems with checking your fluid levels, consult the manual of your vehicle. It could be that your windshield wiper fluid ran totally dry this winter, so you will want to check that, and check the wipers too, in case the blades are run down.
When you look under the hood of your Ford, our staff at Preston Ford, your local Ford dealer, recommends making sure there is no deterioration or fraying on your belts or hoses. If you do see issues, then be sure to take your Ford to the service department at Preston Ford, your Annapolis Ford dealer, so that they can be replaced. First, try tugging on your belts a couple of times to ensure they are tight enough to properly function. If you discover that they are loose, then bring your Ford F-150 or Ford Escape to the Preston Ford service department. You also will want to check out your radiator hose and your tires — definitely your tires — since the harsh weather this winter may have had a negative impact on their performance.
Here at Preston Ford, your local Ford dealer in Maryland, we also suggest looking at the spark plugs of your Ford because their quality can be related to your gas mileage. If they are worn-out, your Ford could be using more gas than normal. It nevers hurt to replace your spark plugs and ensure you are getting the very best fuel economy. You should also look over your Ford thoroughly to guarantee there is no rust. Our team at Preston Ford, your Annapolis Ford dealer, always wants your Ford to be like it was when you first drove it off the sales lot. Be sure to schedule your service today!
