Signs That Your Ford Need New Tires

If your Ford is a few years old, you need to keep tire maintenance in the back of your mind. The older a tire gets, the higher the risk of blowouts and sudden tread separation. As you take a more active role in maintaining your Ford’s tires, you should also be on the lookout for signs that your tires need to be replaced. Driving around on old, worn-out tires is unsafe and can even make your Ford car, truck, or SUV less fun to drive. If you recognize any of these following signs, visit your local Ford dealership in Houston and request a new set of tires for your ride.

Low Tread Depth

Although there are gauges you can buy to measure tire tread depth the way the professionals do, there’s an old trick that can reveal whether or not your tires have enough tread remaining—and it will only cost you a penny. Insert a penny into the tread; if you can see the entirety of Lincoln’s head, your tires are dangerously low on tread and need to be replaced.

Cracks, Bulges, or Blisters

As you check the air pressure and tread depth, look for any visible indications that your tires are damaged or weakened. Cracks, bulges, and blisters will typically appear before a tire blows out or experiences sudden tread separation. If your tires don’t look safe, they probably aren’t. Visit the dealership as soon as possible to have your troublesome tires inspected and, if necessary, replaced. Depending on the damage, your tires may be able to be repaired.

The service technicians here at A.C. Collins Ford can help you pick out the best new set of tires if it’s time for replacements or upgrades. Our Houston Ford dealership also provides all the maintenance and repair services your vehicle needs to stay in tip-top shape.

You can also stop by our dealership anytime and let one of our technicians inspect your tires for you.


Celebrating a Century of Ford Innovation

When Henry Ford built his first automobile over 100 years ago, he set out to do things different—not for the good of himself or his company (which paled in comparison to the global automotive giant Ford is today), but for the good of others. That spirit of innovation has directed the Ford Motor Company ever since, and has resulted in some of the very best automotive innovations in the last century. That’s why earlier this year the organization and its founder were honored with the Golden Gear Award at the Washington Automotive Press Association’s 30 th Anniversary Gala. This award was recognition from the WAPA for Ford’s outstanding contributions to the automotive industry over the last century.

It’s tough to say what Ford has in store for the hundred years, but you can get hands-on with Ford’s latest automotive technology and innovations at A.C. Collins Ford in Houston. Whether you’re in the market for a new Ford vehicle or a pre-owned model, we carry the best selection of Ford cars, trucks, and SUVs in Houston.

What to Do if Your Car Overheats

Texas summers are brutal, especially for older cars. If your vehicle starts to overheat, turn on the heater full blast to try and cool the engine down. Roll the windows down and position the vents away from you to avoid overheating yourself. If the engine temperature doesn’t go down, pull over and wait for the engine to cool before checking the antifreeze level. This video has more information and tips on what to do if your car overheats.

If your car overheats this summer, visit A.C. Collins Ford.

A Closer Look at the 2015 Ford F-150

If you’re waiting for the next generation of pickups to arrive before you buy a new truck, your wait is over. The 2015 Ford F-150 sets a new bar when it comes to performance, capability, and comfort. Before you visit your local Houston Ford dealership to test-drive this incredible new pickup, read this brief overview to learn about some of the 2015 F-150’s best features.

High-Strength Body and Frame

The 2015 F-150 is the new standard in high-strength construction and design. For starters, the new F-150 is built around a class-exclusive, military-grade aluminum-alloy body (the same grade of aluminum that’s used in the aerospace and commercial transportation industries). The fully-boxed streel frame is stronger and more rigid, but also lighter than last year’s model by up to 60 pounds.

Best-in-Class Performance

No doubt about it: The 2015 F-150 works harder than any other truck in its class. But don’t just take our word for it. The new Ford F-150 delivers best-in-class towing (12,200 pounds), best-in-class payload (3,300 pounds), and best-in-class EPA-estimate fuel efficiency. Visit your local Ford dealership to experience the world’s best light-duty pickup for yourself.

Redefined Cab

Drivers who purchase the 2015 Ford F-150 will experience the new standard in cab design each and every day. A class-exclusive fully flat load floor provides ample under-seat storage, while 170-degree swing-out rear doors (SuperCab models) make it easier to get in, get out, load, and unload. And by popular demand, there’s also an available power sliding rear window.

Does Your Ford Need Transmission Service?

It’s no surprise pre-owned Ford vehicles stay on the road for decades. After all, every car, truck, and SUV with the Blue Oval badge is “Built Ford Tough.” But even the most reliable and hard-working Ford vehicles won’t last forever. As the miles start to pile up, you may begin to wonder how everything beneath the hood is faring after all the years. In particular, you may be wondering how many miles are left before the transmission inevitably fails. The good news is that as long as you catch them early, minor transmission problems are typically very easy to fix. Swing by your local Ford dealership in Houston if you recognize any of these signs of impending transmission failure.

Excessive Leaking

Detecting any amount of fluid leaking out of the transmission is cause for concern, but excessive leaking needs to be check out right away. The longer you drive with leak in the transmission, the greater the risk of causing extensive (and expensive) transmission damage.

Delayed Engagement

If you experience noticeable delay after stepping on the gas pedal, this is a sign of a serious internal transmission problem. And if your Ford car or truck has a manual transmission, bring it in for service if the vehicle takes a few seconds to catch up after you move the shifter into the selected gear range.

Unexpected Shifting

After years of driving, you know your Ford better than anyone else. If you notice that the transmission is shifting at unexpected times, or if it changes every time you drive, visit your Ford dealership for a transmission diagnostic. It could be a problem with the internal computer module or some mechanical issue.

Transmission troubles are never fun to deal with, but at least the technicians here at A.C. Collins Ford can have you in and out in no time. In addition to transmission repairs, we are also your home for routine transmission maintenance that can save you lots of time and money in the long run. And if your old Ford has taken a turn for the worst, we can help you select the perfect new Ford vehicle or pre-owned model as a replacement.

Scheduling a Brake Service for Your Ford

New Ford vehicles in Houston are designed to provide you with the best safety features available. Among the most innovative and important safety features on new Ford vehicles are the brakes. Like any of the major mechanical systems in your car, your brakes require routine maintenance in order to remain in proper working condition. To help you keep your Ford in great driving shape, here is a look at the basics of maintaining your brakes.

Inspecting the Master Cylinder

When you schedule a brake service for your Ford, your technician will start by inspecting the master cylinder. This brake component is designed to transfer hydraulic power through your brake lines to your brake pads and rotors. If your master cylinder becomes faulty or damaged, the safety of your entire vehicle may be compromised. During this inspection, your technician may also check for any signs of brake fluid leaks.

Replacing the Brake Pads

In order to safely stop your vehicle, your braking system is equipped with a series of calipers, pads, and rotors. These elements work together to provide the stopping action for your wheels. As your brakes operate, the pads will gradually wear down and will require replacement.

Creating a Maintenance Schedule

During your brake service for your Ford, you may want to talk to your mechanic about creating a brake maintenance schedule. To keep your brakes working great, you may want to have them inspected around every 25,000 miles. Your mechanic can help you set up these key brake maintenance intervals.

To set up maintenance for your Ford vehicle, be sure to call A.C. Collins Ford at (800) 681-0221. When you purchase a new Ford Focus or other quality Ford vehicle, our highly experienced mechanics will help you take perfect care of your purchase. We look forward to seeing you at our Houston dealership.
