What is the maintenance schedule? 2005 Five Hundred

Post by thisguy06 » Sat Nov 19, 2016 12:50 pm

Hello,

I just picked up a 2005 Five Hundred SEL with 64k miles. It didn't have an owners manual or anything with it. I'd like to do they 60k maintenance to it. I've already changed the oil and air filter. Is there anything else I should look at at this time?

thisguy06: My Mom (Emma Jean) still had the complete O/M and other important items including the Scheduled Maintenance Guide. Here is what Ford suggests: oil and filter change; inspect tires; brake pads rotors, lines & hoses, parking brake system, wheel ends for endplay and noise, engine cooling system, there are other items; engine air filter; replace fuel filter; change automatic tranny fluid, including the CVT and CVT filter (which I may do on my 500); I replaced my fuel filter last year and the air filter every 12,000 miles. I downloaded the O/M for my '05 and placed it on my desktop. I am nearing 60K on mine, too. You can also find complete O/M including the nice case on ebay. Hope that helps.
