I have a 2009 Ford Escape XLT. I had an oil change at 1500 miles and have since driven 275 miles since the oil change. I have an oil change advisory allumination notification on the dash now. How do I...


This is how it works on my 2010 Escape. There are 3 buttons to the lower left of your steering column (Info, Setup, and Reset):
1) when it's displaying the "oil change required" message, hit the "reset" button to get rid of the message2) then hit the "Setup" button twice and you'll see the "oil life" screen, which is now at "0%". It tells you what to do next (i.e. "hold reset" until it says 100%).

How do I tune up my 2004 GA?? It has 40,000 miles... what all needs to be changed/checked?


You need to go to a dealer or a certified mechanic. If you don't know already. Usually these will be the things you have to purchase, plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, oil filter & oil, you will need to flush the radiator and the transmission.

At how many miles do I need a tune up?


It depends on the engine you have. If you do not have a 100,000 mile sparkplug then replace plugs every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. Or at 2 to 3 year intervals whichever comes first.

Other maintenence requires shorter times. Oil changes and filters 3000 to 5000 miles. Air filters about 12,000 miles. If you have a distributor cap and rotor about 30,000 to 40,000 miles depending on wear.
Check antifreeze strength, change antifreeze every 3 years. Always have axles and wheel bearings checked at least every 24,000 miles. Lube door hinges annually, hood release, trunklid hinges, etc.

Do I need to change transmission fluid on my 2005 ford freestyle


The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.

No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.

Wrong Transmission oil


you dont need a complete oil change.
the other oil will also lubricate, so the oil you have put on, is as good as the oil who was there before

Low Oil Pressure?


Thats fine. It only takes 4 psi of pressure to keep your engine oiled.
