Ford makes great cars and trucks which are reliable year after year. As one of the original car manufacturers in the Americas, Ford has maintained a reputation of consistently well-made vehicles over the years. However, Ford cars and trucks are like all other vehicles and require routine maintenance procedures to offset the heavy work they endure daily. There are a few basic and routine maintenance procedures every car needs to assure continued peak performance and efficiency.
Engineering and Design
The fact of the matter is, every car on the road undergoes a basic physics equation concerning its mass times velocity, which results in an amount of energy used to propel the vehicle forward and an equal reaction of force against the car parts. Ford trucks are known to be well-designed and capable of handling such forces, yet still have engineering specifications to distribute such force to easily maintained areas instead of breaking something important.
The engineering and design plan of a Ford truck explains the need for routine maintenance. Fluids have to be exchanged, systems need to be inspected after the stresses they receive, and simple procedures such as headlight replacement or compromised electrical components need to be addressed. To the layman, a routine maintenance inspection includes an oil change and topping off of fluids. To a professional technician who understands the mechanics of the vehicle, a routine inspection requires checking the make and model vehicle against any recall or warranty information before doing a thorough inspection of any parts which are likely to become compromised.
What Happens when Maintenance Is Ignored
When routine maintenance is ignored you won't see any immediate effects. The truck will break down sooner than expected, but that's likely to go unnoticed by someone who doesn't understand the importance of keeping their vehicle in tip-top shape. In ultimate terms, it will cost more throughout your life to keep a car or truck and not take care of it. In more immediate terms, the vehicle might not pass a state-required safety inspection and won't be able to be registered for legal use on public roads.
