Our technicians are part of a network of over 35,000 factory‐trained Ford technicians across America ready to service your car, truck or SUV. Their training was developed by the same company that designed, engineered and built your vehicle. This means we have the right parts, tools and techs to help ensure your service is done correctly the first time.
Regular maintenance is important for your vehicle. It includes oil changes, checking and flushing fluids, and tune-ups. These tasks can improve your vehicle's performance, reliability, and lifespan. Neglecting proper servicing can lead to higher repair costs and diminish the value of your vehicle for a future sale or trade-in.
Today's vehicle engines generally have extended oil‐change intervals beyond 3,000 miles, so it is recommended that you consult the specific maintenance schedule interval in your vehicle's owner manual.
At Bruce Walters Ford, an oil change is so much more than just an oil change. When you come in for The Works,® you receive a complete vehicle checkup that includes a synthetic blend oil change, tire rotation and pressure check, brake inspection, Multi‐Point Inspection, fluid top‐off, battery test, and filter, belts and hoses check – all for a very competitive price.
Getting your fluids topped off is a quick and easy process that only takes a few minutes. These fluids include oil, radiator, transmission, power steering, windshield washer, and brake fluid.
It is recommended to change your vehicle's filters every 15K–30K miles. We can easily inspect and replace them during a routine oil change. These filters include the engine air filter, oil filter, fuel filter, and cabin air filter.
Spark plugs need to be changed every 100K miles. The process is more involved than a regular oil change and will vary in terms of time and cost based on the specific year, make, and model of your vehicle.
Belts and hoses play an integral part in your vehicle’s performance. As belts age, the rubber becomes brittle, causing it to crack. If the belt is showing signs of wear on its outer edge, this is also a sign that it will need to be replaced.
Since coolant temperature is about 200 degrees, the hoses that carry it are extremely important. A belt or hose failure can cause loss of both power steering and the electrical charging system, as well as an overheated engine. If your engine overheats, this can cause the cylinder heads to warp, resulting in a very expensive repair.
Hoses are generally inspected for softness and swelling, hardening, cracks, chafing and heat damage. If any of these issues are detected, your hoses will need to be replaced.
Brake issues can start out small but worsen over time. Waiting to have them repaired can greatly increase the costs involved. Having your brakes inspected during a routine maintenance visit can help save you both time and money.
Discs should be inspected for rough spots, warping or damage. If they are shiny and show little signs of wear, maintenance is likely not needed. If they are damaged or warped, these parts should be resurfaced or replaced immediately.
Your vehicle has rubber and metal brake lines and both can crack and leak. Our technicians will first examine the rubber hoses to ensure they are soft and don’t have cracks. They’ll then check the hard metal brake lines for corrosion and leaking. If either is damaged, replacement is recommended.
