Vehicle Maintenance in Holland, MI

Our Holland Ford dealership performs all the regular maintenance necessary to keep your truck running smoothly. When you bring your Ford in, we'll also provide an inspection to determine if anything looks worn.

Filter Replacement

Your vehicle has two important filters: the cabin filter and the engine filter. The cabin filter catches a variety of debris from incoming air:
  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Allergens
  • Mold
As a result, you get high air quality inside your car, no matter what the air is like outside. However, these filters fill up over time and need to be replaced. Otherwise, the air quality suffers, and you end up breathing in the particles mentioned above.
The engine filter is similar in function, but it filters air going into the engine. Air is essential for combustion, which is what makes vehicles move. However, the particles that naturally occur in the air can affect engine efficiency. If you're noticing a dip in gas mileage or it's been a while since you've had your engine filter replaced, our car repair service can inspect it.

Windshield Wiper Replacement

Although not part of your vehicle's inner workings, the windshield wipers are an integral safety feature. When storms strike, windshield wipers ensure good visibility so you can securely navigate the roads. As part of our auto repair service, we'll check your windshield wipers and replace them if they've sustained damage or worn out.

Timing Belt Change

The timing belt is crucial to your truck running smoothly, as it synchronizes the crankshaft and camshaft. Over time, timing belts and chains wear out and need to be replaced before they break. If you're driving when this belt goes out, it can do significant damage to your vehicle.

Battery Replacement

Your battery supplies power to your stereo, lights, and the spark that ignites combustion in your engine. This vital car part usually lasts a few years before needing replacement, as lithium-ion batteries gradually stop holding a charge.
If your battery goes out, you'll be stuck and unable to start your car. Replacing your battery before then ensures you don't have to worry about getting stranded.

Tire Rotation

Tire treads provide friction with the road, increasing your control over the vehicle's movements. Over time, the tread wears down, decreasing friction and eventually affecting safety. One way you can prolong the life of your tread is rotation, which creates more even wear by moving the tires among the four wheels.

In addition to tire rotation, our dealership can also correct alignment issues. If your vehicle is pulling to one side, it's likely out of alignment. This repair isn't just about comfort -- alignment issues affect your control over the car, making a massive difference during split-second reactions.

Brake Maintenance

Your brakes are an essential safety feature that requires regular maintenance. The brake pads, which are responsible for creating the friction that stops your vehicle, wear out with repeated use and become less effective. When they're reaching the end of their lives, you may notice your car takes longer to stop, or the brakes feel "mushy" when you press on the pedal. These are signs you should get your brake pads checked out immediately.

Oil Changes

The engine is made of moving metal parts, which means it needs ample lubrication. That's where auto oil comes in. Over time, the oil picks up dirt that makes its way into the engine and becomes thicker and less effective. Regular oil changes prevent unnecessary wear and tear on your engine.
