Ford Contour/Mystique/Cougar 1995-1999 Repair Guide

Chassis Greasing


Ball joints, suspension bushings and driveline joints are permanently lubricated at the factory and require no periodic lubrication. However, many aftermarket parts used to replace these components will contain a provision for lubrication. The easiest way to determine if a component can be lubricated is to look for a grease (Zerk®) fitting.

Although the manufacturer does not recommend an interval, the editors of this information feel the chassis should be lubricated every 10,000 miles (16,000 km).
