One of the most important ways to enhance a vehicle's lifespan is by ensuring it gets all the care and maintenance it needs. Following a regular maintenance schedule can extend the lifespan of a vehicle by 30-40%.

The Importance of Oil Changes

Of all the most important maintenance tasks a Northampton vehicle owner can be diligent with, regular oil changes should be considered a top priority. Oil plays a vital role in keeping engine parts lubricated. This includes reducing friction levels and heat within the engine's components.

Over time, car oil gets murky, with dirt deposits infiltrating the system, which reduces its ability to work correctly. That is why at Northampton Ford, we follow general manufacturer guidelines and recommend oil changes every 5,000-6,000 miles. This will help protect your engine from unnecessary wear, high friction, and overheating. Car owners in the Northampton area with older vehicles or extensive Northampton driving should consider changing their oil every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.

Other Fluid Servicing

Other vital fluids for maintaining your Northampton vehicle include the transmission fluid, antifreeze, and brake fluid. Transmission fluid is not changed out as frequently as oil. But it should be maintained and checked regularly. At our {GEO}{DEALER}, we recommend changing the transmission fluid every 50,000 to 60,000 miles to keep your transmission running smoothly.

When it comes to the other fluids, at Northampton Ford, we check and top off all vital fluids, including windshield wiper fluid, when our service professionals complete our full-service oil change. This helps ensure your vehicle is always running at its best.
