2011 F150 maintenance

Hello,

I recently purchased a 2011 F150 and was wondering if Ford allows DIY maintenance, such as oil changes, etc.

Or a alternate Garage other then Ford?

Or is all maintenance required to be done by a Ford dealer in order for warranty to be in good standing?

thanks

I depends on the dealer you are dealing with. I'd ask the place you bought it from. And if you DIY your oil changes and maintenance I'd recommend using Motorcraft parts/oil just to be safe.

If you service the truck elsewhere, just make sure you keep your receipts
to prove it was done and that the mileage was recorded

This.

I changed all my own oil, fuel filters, and other maintenance on my ranger while it was under factory warranty. Just be sure to keep records of the service

VMP and 5-Star tuned no more

Buy a hybrid my truck needs your gas
