Oil is the most important fluid for your Ford Explorer. It keeps the engine properly lubricated. According to AAA, most cars need an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Talk to the service pros at our Ford service center to see how often your Ford Explorer SUV’s oil should be changed.

Radiator Fluid

Radiator fluid keeps your engine from overheating. If you run low, you risk overheating your car and stalling out in traffic. Always make sure this fluid is where it should be to avoid costly breakdowns and maintenance headaches.

Transmission Fluid

Transmission fluid keeps your transmission in top shape. The amount of this fluid and its quality need to be checked with care. If it’s pinkish or clear, it’s good. If it smells burnt or has debris in it, it’s time for a changeout of the fluid.

Power Steering Fluid

Power steering fluid lubricates the power steering and makes your car easier to handle. Thus, it is vital for a smooth drive. Don’t forget about this important fluid, or your Ford Explorer might be hard to steer.
