At Richmond Ford Lincoln, we pride ourselves on how we help our friends in the Richmond, Ashland, and Mechanicsville areas get the most out of their vehicle by letting them know about the necessary maintenance that their Ford vehicle needs over the years. Drivers of the Ford Mustang should take the necessary measures to make sure their stylish vehicle can perform like new, so we're here to help by providing the vehicle's maintenance schedule.

Getting a Feel for Your Mustang Maintenance Schedule

You don't have to be a grease monkey to understand your maintenance schedule. It's actually pretty simple. We're breaking the Ford Mustang maintenance schedule down in miles because time's a hard form of measurement as not every driver is the same. Mileage is an easy benchmark that works for everybody. 

Each mileage interval will reflect a few different services that you'll need to have performed. You should remember to have those services performed again every time you add that mileage to your Ford Mustang. Are you ready to learn your maintenance schedule so you can keep your Ford Mustang performing like new?

Ford Mustang Maintenance Schedule

  • 10,000 miles: During this service interval, you'll need to have your tires rotated and inspected, as well as your engine oil and oil filter replaced. The technicians will also inspect your cooling system, exhaust system, ball joints, drive shafts, suspension joints, and your braking system, including the pads, shoes, rotors, drums, lines, and hoses.
  • 20,000 miles: While all of the services listed above will need to be fulfilled, you'll also need to add a cabin air filter replacement.
  • 30,000 miles: On top of the routine services, this visit indicates that you'll need to have your engine air filter replaced.
  • 100,000 miles: At this visit, you have a few services to add to the ever-growing list. During this service interval, you'll need to have your accessory drive belt and replaced if cracked, torn, or warped. Have this belt checked every 10,000 miles from here on out. You'll also need to have your Platinum spark plugs replaced and your orange coolant changed out.
  • 150,000 miles: Congratulations; you've made it this far! You've kept your Ford Mustang in great shape, but now there's a few important services to add to ensure that your Ford Mustang stays in great shape. At this landmark service interval, you should have your automatic transmission fluid and filter replaced and your orange coolant once again changed. During this service appointment, you'll want to replace your accessory drive belt if it hasn't already been replaced.
