GENERAL MAINTENANCE INFORMATION
The required scheduled maintenance services listed in this guide are
considered essential to the proper operation, safety, and performance of
your Ford Motor Company vehicle. We recommend that you also perform
the Owner Maintenance Checks listed. These services are matters of
day-to-day care that are also important to the proper operation of your
vehicle. The recommended lubricants, fluids, and service parts
conforming to Ford Specifications are available from your Ford or
Lincoln Mercury dealer.
This guide gives you a place to record the services that are performed on
your vehicle so that you can keep a record of when parts should be
checked or replaced. Give your Service Guide to your Ford or
Lincoln-Mercury service manager.
Maintenance: An investment
Maintenance is an investment that will pay dividends in the form of
improved reliability, durability, and resale value.
To assure the durability of your vehicle and its emission control systems,
it is necessary that scheduled maintenance be performed at the
designated intervals.
Ford strongly recommends the use of genuine Ford replacement parts. If
other than Ford or Motorcraft parts or Ford authorized remanufactured
parts are used for maintenance replacement or for the service of
components affecting emission control, the non-Ford parts should be
equivalent to genuine Ford Motor Company parts in performance and
durability. It is the owner’s responsibility to determine the equivalency of
such parts. Please consult your Warranty Guide for complete warranty
information.
NO COST PCV VALVE REPLACEMENT
The PCV valve is a critical emission component. Your dealer will replace
the valve at no cost at 60,000 miles (96,000 kilometers), except in
Canada and California.

steering effort or looseness in the steering wheel, or change in its
straight ahead position.
❑ Notice if the vehicle constantly turns slightly or “pulls” to one side
when traveling on smooth, level road.
❑ When stopping, listen and check for strange sounds, pulling to one
side, increased brake pedal travel, or “hard to push” brake pedal.
❑ If any slipping or changes in the operation of your transaxle occurs,
check the transaxle fluid level.
❑ Check automatic transaxle park function.
❑ Check parking brake.
❑ Verify proper BRAKE and ABS bulb check response when starting your
