Regularly servicing your truck at Winslow Ford, the Show Low Ford dealer, according to Ford’s recommended intervals ensures it will operate reliably. This routine care can prevent breakdowns and costly repairs by addressing potential issues early.
According to the Show Low Ford dealership, adhering to the maintenance schedule also helps retain the vehicle’s resale value and keeps it in compliance with warranty requirements. It’s a small investment of time and care that pays dividends in the form of uninterrupted service and peace of mind on the road.
Here’s a rundown of the services performed during key maintenance milestones.
At the 7,500-mile mark, your Ford F-250 Super Duty is due for its initial maintenance visit. The session starts with an oil change to keep the engine running cleanly, followed by replacing the oil filter. Our certified service technicians rotate the tires, inspect them for damage, and adjust the pressure. They also inspect the wheels, steering mechanisms, suspension joints, brakes, cooling system, exhaust system, and half-shaft boots, checking for signs of wear or malfunction. These services are repeated during subsequent visits to help maintain your truck’s reliability and driving quality.
At 15,000 miles, your Ford F-250 Super Duty undergoes a more in-depth examination on top of the standard services provided earlier. The service technicians check the vehicle’s fluids, including the automatic transmission fluid. They proceed with an inspection of the brake system’s components for wear and safety. Cooling system checks involve evaluating the engine coolant and the integrity of its hoses. The exhaust system and heat shields are inspected for damage or leaks. The undercarriage receives a thorough examination, including the front axle, U-joints, steering linkage, as well as suspension components like ball joints, driveshafts, and tie-rod ends. The engine air filter and cabin air filter are replaced at this stage to ensure clean airflow into the engine and the vehicle’s cabin.
When your 2024 Ford F-250 Super Duty reaches 100,000 miles, the service team will replace the spark plugs, a crucial component for engine efficiency and smooth operation. They’ll also evaluate and potentially replace the engine coolant to ensure the cooling system remains effective. An inspection of the accessory drive belt is also conducted to identify any wear or damage—replacement isn’t always required at this point, but early detection of issues can prevent future breakdowns.
Reaching the 150,000-mile mark is a testament to the care invested in your Ford F-250 Super Duty. Our service technicians will perform several key replacements during this visit to ensure your truck keeps running strong. They’ll replace the accessory drive belt, which is essential for powering various engine accessories, along with the front wheel bearings and seals, which are critical for wheel stability and rotation. This maintenance visit also includes replacing the fluids in the transfer case and axle to protect these components and maintain optimal performance.
