Larger servicing items, belt / coolant etc.

Recommended Posts

Apart from the usual oil/filter/air filter/spark plugs. On a 1.0 ecoboost 2015 what and when ideally for long term ownership would other parts be changed?

Ford advise 10 years / 150,000 miles for the timing belt/tensioner/idlers, the Haynes manual advises to follow 8 years / 100,000 miles.

Ford also advise 10 years for coolant.

I was thinking for long term ownership I would get the belt, tensioner etc. plus the coolant done at 8 years (which for my mileage comes to around 96,000). 

Does this sound about right?

Also does the coolant pump need changing at the same time? And would it be sensible to do the aux belt as well with the above lot?

I’d recommend Brake fluid every 2 years

Coolant every 50k Miles and after any significant overheating event. The Ford OEM coolant breaks down at high temps leading to sandy looking deposits in the coolant tanks. These engines are very sensitive to overheating.
