If you operate your vehicle primarily in any of the following conditions, you need to perform extra maintenance, as indicated. If you operate your vehicle occasionally under any of these conditions, it is not necessary to perform the extra maintenance. For specific recommendations, see your dealership service advisor or technician.
Perform the services shown in the following tables when specified or within 3000 mi (4,800 km) of a message appearing in the information display prompting you to change your oil.
  • Example 1: The message comes on at 28,751 mi (46,270 km). Perform the 30000 mi (48,000 km) automatic transmission fluid replacement.
  • Example 2: The message has not come on, but the odometer reads 30000 mi (48,000 km) (for example, the Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor was reset at 25000 mi (40,000 km)). Perform the engine air filter replacement.

Extensive Idling or Low-speed Driving for Long Distances  
As required   Change the engine oil and filter as indicated by the information display and perform services listed in the Normal Scheduled Maintenance chart.  
Inspect frequently, service as required   Replace the cabin air filter.  
Every 15000 mi (24,000 km)   Inspect the engine air filter. Replace as required.  
Every 60000 mi (96,000 km)   Replace the spark plugs.  

Operating in Dusty or Sandy Conditions Such as Unpaved or Dusty Roads  
Inspect frequently, service as required   Replace the cabin air filter.  
Every 15000 mi (24,000 km)   Inspect the engine air filter. Replace as required.  
Every 5000 mi (8,000 km)   Inspect the wheels and related components for abnormal noise, wear, looseness or drag.  
Rotate the tires, inspect the tires for wear and measure the tread depth.  
Every 3000 mi (4,828 km) or six months   Change the engine oil and filter.1  
Every 60000 mi (96,560 km)   Change the dual clutch transmission fluid and the side filter.  

1Reset your Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor after each engine oil and filter change.
Operating at High Speeds and Track Days
Your vehicle is capable of sustained high speeds and track day driving.
Before operating your vehicle at high speeds:
  • Verify your tires have the correct pressures.   See   Tires
  • Inspect wheels and tires for wear and damage. Replace any damaged wheels and tires.
  • Check and set lug nut torque.   See   Wheels
  • Verify fluid levels for oil, coolant, brake, and hydraulic fluid.   See   Maintenance
  • Change the oil and filter prior to use on the track.
After operating your vehicle at high speeds or track day driving, do the following:
  • Set tire pressures to specification.
  • Check and set the lug nut torque.   See   Wheels
  • Check all fluid levels.
  • Refer to the Track Maintenance Interval Chart.   See   Normal Scheduled Maintenance
There are several exceptions to the Normal Schedule:
Axle Maintenance
If the axle fluid starts to approach the maximum allowable temperature, a yellow message appears in the information display stating that the axle is over temperature and you should reduce your speed. Reducing your speed allows the axle fluid to cool down to normal operating temperatures. Unless the wrench warning indicator appears, there is no need to change the axle fluid if you receive this message.
Non Emission Powetrain Fault  If the axle fluid reaches or exceeds the maximum allowable temperature, a red message appears in the information display along with a wrench warning indicator. Change the rear axle fluid at the next convenient time. For example, if you are at a track it would be acceptable to change the fluid after the track event, but before any additional track events or on-road driving takes place. The wrench warning indicator turns off when you switch off your vehicle.
Change the axle fluid anytime an axle is submerged in water.
California Fuel Filter Replacement
If you register your vehicle in California, the California Air Resources Board has determined that the failure to perform this maintenance item does not nullify the emission warranty or limit recall liability before the completion of your vehicle's useful life. Ford Motor Company, however, urges you to have all recommended maintenance services performed at the specified intervals and to record all vehicle service.
Hot Climate Oil Change Intervals
Vehicles operating in the Middle East or locations with similar climates using an American Petroleum Institute (API) Certified for Gasoline Engines (Certification mark) oil of SM or SN quality, the normal oil change interval is 3000 mi (4,800 km).
If the available API SM or SN oils are not available, then the oil change interval is 1800 mi (2,900 km).
Engine Air Filter and Cabin Air Filter Replacement
The life of the engine air filter and cabin air filter is dependent on exposure to dusty and dirty conditions. Vehicles operated in these conditions require frequent inspection and replacement of the engine air filter and cabin air filter.
