What to Get Checked Every Month

When it comes to your Ford F-150, there are certain items you’ll need to get examined every month. Your engine oil level and windshield washer fluid level should be checked and replaced, if necessary. You also want to make sure all the interior and exterior lights are working properly, and that the tires (including the spare) have the proper pressure, and no wear and tear.

Ford F-150 Maintenance: 10,000 Miles

Every 10,000 miles, the above features will need to be looked at. You’ll also need to have your engine oil and oil filter replaced, your tires aligned, and the following objects inspected:

  • Transmission fluid
  • Brake system (pads, rotors, drums, lines, and fluid)
  • Cooling system (hoses and fluid)
  • Complete exhaust system and heat shields

At the 30,000-mile mark, you’ll need to get everything mentioned above looked at. Plus, you’ll need your engine air filter, brake fluid, and Clean Mass Airflow Sensor examined and replaced, if needed.

You’ll need all non-sealed steering linkage, ball joints, suspension joints, half and drive shafts, and u-joints inspected and lubricated. You’ll also need to replace front wheel bearing grease and grease seals if non-sealed bearings are used (2-wheel drive vehicles).

60,000 Miles

After 60,000 miles, you’ll following almost the same exact procedure as the 30,000-mile one. However, if you frequently tow trailers, or endure extensive idling or low-speed driving for long distances, you’ll need to change the transfer case fluid (4-wheel drive vehicles) and replace the spark plugs.

150,000 Miles

The 150,000-mile mark is when the most replacements will need to be done. However, if your vehicle continues to run well after 150,000 miles, then you’ve done an excellent job at keeping up with the necessary maintenance.

At this point, this is what you’ll need done to your Ford F-150:Ford F-150 Maintenance Schedule
