Rely on Genuine Ford Parts
At Jim Burke Ford, we always recommend that our customers use Genuine Ford Parts, which are Ford’s brand of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts. Their manufacturers must comply with higher standards in manufacturing quality and operational specifications.
In short, OEM parts fit right, work precisely as Ford intended, and last longer than aftermarket parts. OEM parts are identical to the original parts used to build Ford vehicles in the factory and come with a warranty, unlike many aftermarket parts.
Any manufacturer can make an aftermarket part for any car, truck, or SUV. Unfortunately, these companies aren’t held to the same high standards as OEM companies. In these cases, an aftermarket part only needs to fit and work.
Aftermarket manufacturers often make the same parts for multiple vehicles and sometimes different brands. This practice leads to poorly fitting parts made from lesser-quality materials that don’t work according to Ford’s requirements.
As a result, aftermarket parts may be a slightly different size or have a mounting bracket that may not line up correctly. This leads to a poor fit and sometimes no fit at all. When they do fit, they don’t work as well, leading to poor performance. They also fail sooner because of the inferior quality of materials and construction.
Aftermarket parts cost less to make than Genuine Ford Parts, so they’re cheaper to buy. But having to replace a part that doesn’t fit right, performs poorly, and fails sooner doesn’t save money in the long run.
Common Replacement Parts
Ford vehicles require routine maintenance on a regular schedule. Components that require maintenance include oil and oil filters, spark plugs, engine air filters, cabin air filters, brake pads, wiper blades, fuel filters, tires, and more. These parts wear out naturally over time.
For example, a vehicle’s brake pads operate under extreme conditions to bring it to a controlled stop. The pads wear due to the friction created during braking and eventually need replacing.
Likewise, oil keeps the many moving parts within a vehicle’s engine lubricated and protected from the high heat of combustion. Engine oil breaks down during driving, losing its viscosity or ability to lubricate and protect. Oil also collects particulates left over from combustion, which the oil filter helps collect. Eventually, the oil and filter need changing to keep the vehicle’s engine running at its peak and to prolong its life.
Tires also wear out due to the friction between rubber and road. Eventually, the tread gets too low, creating an unsafe surface that means it’s time for new tires. Our parts department has an expansive inventory of routine maintenance parts at competitive prices.
Accessories and Special Order Items
At Jim Burke Ford, many people love adding a personal touch to their vehicles. That’s why we stock an extensive selection of accessories. We also offer special order items for unique parts we don’t have in our inventory.
For example, Ford Bronco owners love adding the Ford Performance Winch Kit or carriers such as the Yakima Roof Platform to enhance their weekend excursions. Similarly, F-150 owners like to install ladder racks and other carrier systems to make work easy. Or they add bed covers and bed caps to secure gear against weather and theft.
No matter what type of accessories our customers want, we likely have them in stock. If not, we can special order them for delivery in days.
We strongly recommend only using Genuine Ford Accessories. They fit correctly and work perfectly. Aftermarket accessories can sometimes void a vehicle’s warranty, so anyone planning on using such parts should check with our service department first to ensure they maintain their vehicle’s warranty protection.
Online Parts Ordering Process
We’ve streamlined the process of ordering parts with our online ordering system. First, the customer fills out the order form with their contact information, vehicle details, and required parts. Then, one of our parts technicians will get in touch to confirm the order and submit an invoice. We’ll be in contact again once we’ve assembled the parts order to schedule pickup or delivery.
Our accessories order process starts by selecting a vehicle’s year, make, and model. It’s also possible to filter by category to make searching easier. Once a customer finds an accessory they like, they can add it to their shopping list or request a quote.
