Today’s vehicle engines generally have extended oil‐change intervals beyond 3,000 miles, so it is recommended that you consult the specific maintenance schedule interval in your vehicle’s owner manual.
Today’s vehicles are loaded with technology. That’s why it’s more important than ever to ensure your battery operates at peak performance. At Bayou Ford, we know exactly what battery is needed for your specific vehicle and can help guide you through what can be a somewhat complex process.
CABIN AIR FILTER
Your vehicle’s filters should be changed every 15K‐30K miles. Most can be inspected and replaced during a routine oil change. These include the engine air filter, oil filter, fuel filter and cabin air filter.
Brake issues can start out small but worsen over time. Waiting to have them repaired can greatly increase the costs involved. Having your brakes inspected during a routine maintenance visit can help save you both time and money.
STRUTS & SHOCKS
Maintaining your tires not only helps keep you safe, it also helps your vehicle run more efficiently and extends the life of the tires themselves. Following these simple steps will help ensure you get the most out of your tires:
Have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles – see tire manufacturer for specific recommendations. Have your tires inspected during every service visit.
Routine maintenance, such as oil changes, having fluids checked/flushed and tune‐ups, can greatly increase your vehicle’s performance and reliability as well as greatly extend its life. Failing to properly service your vehicle can result in increased repair costs, as well as greatly reduce its value for a future sale or trade‐in.
