At Richmond Ford Lincoln, we're always trying to help our friends in the Richmond, Ashland, and Mechanicsville area get the most out of their Ford. One way we try to help our friends is by providing them with necessary resources on the best ways to maintain their Ford. That's why we're providing you with the Ford Focus maintenance schedule.

Keeping up with your maintenance schedule is beneficial in numerous ways. Routine maintenance is one of the best ways to help keep your Ford Focus lasting for many years. It's also a way to spot a minor issue before it becomes a major and costly problem in the future.

Making Sense of Your Maintenance Schedule

Your Ford Focus maintenance schedule is actually easy to follow. It's broken down by miles, and each mileage corresponds with a few services that you'll need to have met during that visit. However, the most important thing to remember is that you need to have that service repeated every time you add that many miles to your Ford Focus.

Ford Focus Maintenance Schedule

  • 10,000 Miles. When you reach this mileage, there are numerous services that you'll have to have performed at this visit and the next visit around 20,000 miles. During this visit, you'll need to have your engine oil and oil filter replaced. You'll also need to have your tires inspected for wear, and rotated. Lastly, you'll need to have a multi-point inspect performed on your vehicle, including your transmission fluid, braking system, cooling system, exhaust system, and the steering linkage, ball joints, and suspension to ensure that everything is working properly. 
  • 20,000 Miles. During this service interval, you'll need to repeat the previously listed services. You'll also need to add a cabin air filter replacement to the list. 
  • 30,000 Miles. At 30,000 miles, you'll need to repeat all the services, only you'll be including an engine air filter replacement during your services. 
  • 100,000 Miles. If you've kept up with your maintenance, and you've had these services performed every 10,000 miles, then your Ford Focus is in great shape. When you reach this mileage, though, you'll need some major services to keep your vehicle in phenomenal shape. At this point, you'll need to have your engine coolant changed, your spark plugs replaced, and your accessory drive belt should be inspected thoroughly. 
  • 150,000 Miles. If you've reached this mileage, you've taken great strides at keeping your Ford Focus in tip-top shape-way to go! However, there are a few important items to cross of the list. During this visit, you'll need to have your automatic/manual transmission fluid changed. Your accessory drive belt will need to be replaced if it wasn't already. Lastly, if your Ford Focus features the 1.0L engine, you'll need to have your timing and oil pump belt replaced.
