There is nothing like getting in your car and knowing that it is going to work just like you expected. You start the engine, the warning lights flash for a moment, and then they fade as your car’s engine warms up. All is good in the world, at least your automotive world. But sadly, this is not always the case. Sometimes you start your car, and the check engine light stays on, or you see the tire pressure indicator light staying on, particularly on a cold morning. This is when you need to find someone that can service your car. This is when you need to call us at Kings Ford Service.

We have a team of highly trained service technicians who are dedicated to making your car run right. Our technicians are trained and equipped to work on far more than just Ford models; they can handle any make and model of cars, trucks, minivans, and SUVs.

Good tire maintenance is critical to your car’s performance, yet it is something that many folks neglect. Just like other parts of your vehicle, tires are subject to routine wear and tear. Over time, the tread will run thin. Also, tires don’t wear evenly, which is why you need to routinely rotate your tires to balance the wear and extend their lives. Riding on tires that are getting bald or have uneven wear will reduce the handling of your car and make it more likely that you will hydroplane in inclement weather. At Kings Ford Service, we can arrange for a tire inspection and rotation. If you are noticing a problem, stop in, and our team will give your tires a look and, if necessary, rotate them for you.
Another problem with tires is air pressure. During the winter months, as temperatures drop, so does the air pressure in your tires. Conversely, when the summer comes along, and things start to heat up, your tire pressure will increase. Each manufacturer not only selects a set of tires that is ideal for their specific model but also sets the proper tire pressure for your optimum handling, fuel efficiency, and performance. Many newer cars are equipped with an electronic tire pressure monitoring system, and some will even tell you how much air is in each tire. If you have an older vehicle that doesn’t have this feature, you can always check the manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure on the sticker on the bottom of the driver side door frame. Take a tire gauge, and then check each tire to see that you have the proper amount of air in each one. If you see a consistent problem with tire pressure, this may indicate a leak. Stop by so we can check your tires and help you repair the leak before it does significant damage to your tires.
At Kings Ford Service, we carry all of the major brands of tires, including Bridgestone, Michelin, Continental, and more. If your vehicle needs a new set of tires, we will help you select the best one for your vehicle. What’s more, we offer up to three-years of protection on your new set of tires from us with TireCARE Road Hazard Coverage. This optional coverage provides no-deductible repair or replacement of your new tires. Tire care is too important to the safety and handling of your vehicle. Let our experts at Kings Ford Service help you with all of your tire care needs.
Your car’s engine, transmission, brakes, and steering rely on fluids to keep them lubricated and running smoothly. However, over time, engine oil, engine coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid will start to break down and become contaminated. That is especially so if you drive your vehicle a great deal, particularly for short trips or in stop and go traffic. The heat and friction from the moving parts in these key systems damage the fluids, while dust, dirt, and small filings will begin to gum up the fluids.
This is why it is crucial to have your oil change on a routine basis in your car, depending on the type of engine and oil. You should check your vehicle’s owner manual to find out how often this should be done according to the manufacturer. If you have an older vehicle, then you should do get an oil change more often. You will also need to have the other fluid levels checked regularly and may need to have this replaced if there is an issue with them. As part of this service, we will also replace any filters that have become dirty or clogged as a result of usage.
At Kings Ford Service, our expert team has been trained to spot issues with your various vehicle fluids, including engine oil, so that they can help you use routine maintenance to prevent it from becoming a major problem. Not only will this improve the overall performance of your engine, transmission, and brakes, it will also help you avoid costly repairs to these critical components of your car.
Other Services We Offer
At Kings Ford Service, we offer a full range of automotive maintenance for your car, truck, minivan, or SUV. Some of the things can seem rather simple, like replacing your car’s battery, replacing worn wiper blades, and fixing a broken headlight or taillight. However, if you neglect a battery that is consistently failing to hold a charge, you run the risk of getting stranded somewhere when the battery fails to start your engine. Neglecting a broken lamp or bulb in your headlight or taillight can lead to an expensive ticket for a moving violation, and the reduced visibility can even result in an avoidable accident. We also will help replace worn or damaged belts and hoses. Oftentimes, a major repair begins with a belt or hose that needed to be replaced.
Sometimes your car needs a more detailed service, such as a wheel alignment. Our service team can keep your vehicle’s wheels properly aligned and make whatever adjustments you need to your steering or suspension so that you can drive as safely as possible. Driving with misaligned wheels can lead to bigger problems with your car’s tires, brakes, and suspension system.
We also offer repairs to your air conditioning and engine cooling systems. These are especially important during the summer when extreme heat can not only make you and your passengers uncomfortable; it can also do serious damage to your vehicle’s engine. Finally, at Kings Ford Service, we can help you with whatever problem may arise in your vehicle’s electrical system, from a loose wire or short circuit to an issue with your alternator. This will prevent a minor issue from becoming a major problem repair.
