Ford Edge Preventative Maintenance Schedule

Recommended Posts

Hi guy, I'm new this forum as a member, but have used it quite a bit over the last 6 months. Really great information and resources here. 


I wanted to post a maintenance schedule that I've gathered from this forum and others to put it in a nice and easy table. Long story short, I wanted to contribute to something that is printable. That being said, this is what I've gathered.


  10k 20k 30k 40k 50k 60k 70k 80k 90k 100k 110k 120k 130k 140k 150k

Replace accessory drive belts (if not replaced)           X           X      
Replace Platinum Spark Plugs                 X            


From this standpoint, and I know this can be a loaded question. Anything I should move around or add?

Great effort!   One suggestion, time is also a factor with lubricants, particularly engine oil as it has to deal with fuel and other contaminants.  Suggested oil changes are (depending on service/driving habits/oil type) 5k-10k miles or one year.  Some still change oil at 3k but they're probably still using that 20th century dino stuff while others will argue their synthetic will run 15k or more.   You're just not going to win that one :)

You'll want to consult tire manufacturer websites but I believe rotations are recommended every 5k miles and replacement every 5-6 years.

@Gadgetjq fair points and thanks for your input. For mine, I use the IOLM to tell me when it's time to change the motor oil and rotate the tires. For me when the light comes on its about 8,500 miles since the last change (I drive 15k miles a year and don't have to worry about time). From a personal standpoint, I've typically seen even tire wear when doing rotations on the oil change schedule. Am I getting "the best" life out of the tires, probably not. But I can't imagine I'm leaving that much on the table. 


The point to me is that I like my Edge Sport and want to keep it for a long time. It's got 30k on it right now and have "normal" driving habits. I figured might as well create a plan so I don't have to think about it again. Maintenance is always fun because manufacturers print their books before they know of issues or under engineer to cover their warranty periods.


I don't have anything on here around the front differential. I couldn't find much on that and will prob just do that when I do the rear.  I'll have to add some time intervals on there for changes as well and post videos to help anyone do this on their own. Any other "fluid" changes I'm missing?

The front diff is part of the transmission.  It is lubed with the tranny fluid not a separate operation.

Nice chart,  will be useful.

I did the $1700 water pump and have changed the coolant at 30,000 mile intervals since then.  (Talk about  closing the barn door after the horse ran away.)

Around 80,000.  The car had the original gold coolant that ford said was good for life.  I didn't know about the service bulletin requiring the change to Ford green.  I now have over 140,000 miles and it's time for the second change.
