If you want your vehicle to remain reliable and roadworthy you should get regular services done. These services ensure that the vehicle is roadworthy, reliable, and operates as originally intended. Servicing also allows Ford technicians to identify if there are any problems with the vehicle or if any components have become worn out and need replacing. This will ensure that you always use genuine Ford parts and yet your vehicle will not cost you an arm and a leg.
You should always ensure that repairs and services are done by registered Ford technicians like the ones we have here at North Western Ford.

Pull it out and wipe it clean, then push it all the way back in until the top of it is seated properly in the dip tube again. Wait a moment then pull it out again. Check the level of the oil. If it's between the high and low marks, you're fine.
Inspect the brake pads and rotors to ensure they’re still looking good. You can do this by removing the tire. If the brake pads are showing wear to the extent that you can't see much of the pad, it’s time to replace them.
