Vehicle Maintenence Schedule

The following is the "Normal Maintenace Schedule" recommended by Ford. Normal Maintenace is recommened for those operating operating the vehicle under "typical", everyday driving conditions.

If you drive your vehicle in a "demanding" fashion, or what Ford calls "Special Operating Conditions(SOC)", you should refer to the Special Operating Conditions section of your official Ford Scheduled Maintenance Guide.

Special Operating Conditions Maintenance should be considered if you "more than occasionally" do one of the following:

- Tow or carry heavy loads.
- Idle excessively, or drive at low speeds for long distances.
- Drive in dusty conditions.
- Operate your vehicle off-road.

Check Every Month

- All interior and exterior lights
