Our Ford factory-trained Technicians with Red Seal certifications will complete an 83-point inspection using our exclusive Vehicle Report Card at every service. During the examination, the following components and systems will receive a thorough analysis:

The results from the assessments will be recorded on a Vehicle Report Card, using a red, yellow and green rating system to detail what components are running well, what needs immediate attention, and what may require service to help you plan for future maintenance.

If left unaddressed, a dirty transmission can lead to more significant problems and more expensive repairs. Instead, bring your commercial truck in for service at Skaha Ford in BC to protect your investment.

The transmission fluid in your Ford is crucial to its reliable operation. It acts as a lubricant and a hydraulic fluid that supports gear changes, keeps the transmission cool, and greases moving parts. Unfortunately, the fluid will degrade faster if you operate under severe conditions, transport big loads, or tow frequently, necessitating a flush. Transmission fluid can also collect dirt and particles over time, leading to mechanical issues if not taken care of.

When you schedule your medium-duty truck for an inspection, our Ford factory-trained experts with Red Seal certifications will examine your transmission fluid to see whether it's in good shape or if it needs to be replaced. If a flush is required, the old fluid will be removed and replenished with new, restoring your truck's performance and ensuring smooth shifting and gear changes.

To learn more, contact Skaha Ford's Service Department in Penticton to book an appointment.

Between gravel roads, hot asphalt, and endless kilometres, the tires on your Ford need special care and attention to enhance your crew's uptime.

That's why Skaha Ford in BC offers tire balancing and rotations for busy fleets. These two services go hand-in-hand and are essential for your vehicle's safe and reliable operation. 

Balancing minimizes any wobbling from the wheels, which causes the steering wheel to vibrate at high speeds. Constant vibration will lead to premature tire replacements and suspension, alignment and steering components. 

When balancing tires, it's also essential to rotate your tires with diagonal and straight rotation patterns. This service will ensure an even distribution of the different wear characteristics of each of the tire positions. Additionally, rotations will allow for a longer tire life when performed regularly. A good rule of thumb is to rotate your fleet's tires with each oil change.

You made a wise choice when you equipped your business with a Ford medium-duty truck. Protect your investment with preventative and repair services offered by our team at Skaha Ford. 

To schedule an appointment, call us today.

At Skaha Ford, our factory-trained Red Seal-certified Technicians can give your medium-duty trucks the expert treatment they need to keep them operating well on Hedley roads.

Our electrical repair and maintenance services include:

Batteries and Cables
Whether it's time for a replacement battery or the cables and connections have failed or corroded, our team can inspect and replace these components on your medium-duty truck. 

Breakers and Fuses
Fuses and circuit breakers are designed to protect circuits in an overload. Regular inspections and replacements can ensure the lasting performance of your medium-duty truck's electrical systems.

Commercial fleets operate in low-light conditions and at night. Our factory-trained Red Seal-certified Technicians will test and inspect your lighting system for optimal performance to ensure your crew's productivity and safety.

Spark Plugs
Spark plugs channel the electrical current to ignite the air and fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. Over time, these parts wear out and require replacement, which is why regular inspections are essential.

Starters and Alternators
A starter converts electrical energy into mechanical energy, and the alternator charges your medium-duty truck's battery. Preventative maintenance minimizes downtime and avoids being stranded on the job site.

Wiring and Switches
Faulty wiring and switches are enough to ground any commercial fleet. Bolster your uptime with regular electrical inspections to identify fault connections before they arise.

To learn more about our electrical repair and maintenance services for your medium-duty truck, contact Skaha Ford in Penticton to speak with an advisor.

Not only does it power the starting system, but it also supplies energy to all of the electrical components.  

As a result, the battery is an essential component of your commercial truck – and one that our service experts at Skaha Ford can ensure superior performance with our maintenance services.

Batteries begin to fail after approximately three years, but it’s not the only determining factor. Battery life depends on usage cycles and operating conditions. Warning signs of a worsening battery can include:

• Hard starting, slow cranking
• Accessory failure
• Charging or electrical system problems
• Damaged battery cables 
• Bulging or deformed battery containers
• Loose battery terminals
• Leaky battery fluid

When you bring your Ford medium-duty truck in for service, our factory-trained Red Seal-certified Technicians can test your battery to ensure optimal performance. We will also complete a visual inspection of the battery and its connections. If replacement is required, we can recommend and install the best battery for your commercial vehicle to perform well with your typical driving conditions.
