Ford Service Maintenance Schedule 

As mentioned above, adhering to the Ford service schedule is essential to optimal vehicle health. Below, you will find the services that should be performed at each interval. 

Every 7,500 to 10,000 miles: 

  • Multi-point inspection
  • Lubricate unsealed joints

What happens when your vehicle hits 100,000 miles? Regular Ford service is still needed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. After the 100,000-mile mark, the following services are also needed to address other vital components of your Ford sedan, SUV, or truck.
