Advantages of the Ken Grody Ford San Diego service in San Diego, CA

When you need to service your car, you may consider taking it to a dealership that sells your make of vehicle. Many dealers not only sell cars, but also work on the cars to prepare them for sale, allowing them to become familiar with their vehicle brands.


If you purchased a new car and it is still under warranty, your local dealer will be able to access the warranty immediately and start working on your car. This could save you a lot of time, energy and frustration that you would otherwise be using to fill out paperwork or transfer warranty.

Products in inventory

If you perform basic maintenance, your dealer likely has the products and parts you need to get the job done without having to order them. This will get your car back to you sooner and you won't have to pay shipping costs.

Familiarity with your vehicle

Vehicles are manufactured in different ways and you will want someone who is familiar with your type of vehicle to work on your car. The dealers who sell your car should be more familiar with your make and model than other mechanics.

The best thing about having your car serviced at the dealership is that you will be familiar with their work style and location. You won't have to worry about searching the phone book for mechanical work to be done.

FAQ about the Ken Grody Ford San Diego service

How often should I change my vehicle's oil?

There are many variables that determine how often an oil change needs to be done (weather, driving time, driving on highways or city streets, etc.) You should refer to the Scheduled Maintenance section in your vehicle's owner's manual. Do you need an oil change? Browse our Ford oil change coupons and schedule a service appointment Ford today! Should I consider using synthetic motor oil in my vehicle?

Synthetic motor oils can be a good choice for high-performance turbocharged or supercharged engines. Or for vehicles that are used for towing (especially during hot weather), and vehicles that operate in extremely cold or hot weather. Although more expensive than mineral-based oils, synthetic motor oils can improve fuel economy and provide longer drain intervals.

How often should I rotate my tires?

Your tires should be rotated every two oil changes, or every 6,000 miles. Failure to rotate tires is one of the main causes of premature tire wear. Explore tire coupons and special offers Ford at our service center Ford in San Diego.

Do I really need to change my timing belt at the recommended interval?

YES. In many cars, timing belt failure can cause major engine damage. The cost of repairing an engine with a damaged timing belt is much greater than the cost of replacing the timing belt.

I have a belt that makes a very loud squealing noise in my car. Should I change it?

Inspect and replace belts regularly. Your car's belt system helps things like the alternator and air conditioning compressor work properly. When a belt becomes damaged, it can cause costly damage. To avoid this, inspect them regularly for wear. If they show signs, go ahead and replace them before they become a problem.

What does it mean when the “check engine” light or “service engine soon” light comes on?

There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicle's engine performance and emissions. When one of these fails, the engine warning light comes on. Even if your car seems to be running fine, it's important to address the problem to avoid long-term problems.

What should I do if my car starts to overheat?

This is a very serious problem: if your car overheats for too long, it can damage the engine. Immediately, find a safe place to pull off the road and turn off the engine! Do not attempt to check the fluid level in the radiator; Hot liquid can cause serious burns. The best thing to do is to have your car towed to your local Ford dealership.

Why is motor oil milky brown?

Milky brown motor oil is an indication that there is coolant in the oil. This can be caused by a damaged head gasket (or other gasket), a faulty transmission cooler, or cracked housings. This condition is very serious and should be checked by a professional technician immediately.

How do I make sure my car battery has a good electrical connection?

Battery cables and terminals should be cleaned and inspected periodically to ensure that they provide a good electrical connection. Do you need a new car battery or just need service for a car battery? Check out our current car battery coupons and service specials.

When should I replace my car's fuel filter?

To help ensure reliable, trouble-free performance, replace your car's fuel filter approximately every 30,000 miles or as recommended in your vehicle's owner's manual.

When should I change my spark plugs?

For maximum fuel economy and maximum engine performance, you should replace your spark plugs every 30 months or 30,000 miles.
