2003 Ford Expedition – 100k Mile Service

When you take care of your car, you keep big problems at bay. Think of taking care of your are in two ways: You’re either going to spend money maintaining it, or you’re going to spend money buying a new one. Either way, you will spend money.

This particular customer brought in his 2003 Expedition for his regular 100k maintenance, and a tune up. The 100k check up is pretty extensive, so we were prepared to bring in a buffet of bad news. But since the customer had taken good care of his truck, almost no problems were found.

We flagged a few transfer case and differential leaks. Pretty normal for the 100k mark.

Its a good thing we caught this on time. Leaking differentials and transfer cases cause vibration, and eventually your differential will lock up and look something like this:

CAM00638

See how the gears are broken and gnawed up? Don’t worry. This didn’t come from the Expedition. This came from another Volvo project we will be posting soon.

Besides doing a set of spark plugs, 4 brake sets, and the transfer case/differential seals this car was a cake walk. Thank you Bruce, for keeping up with your maintenance. You saved yourself A LOT of money.
