Each Ford Protect ESP plan covers major engine components, plus all gaskets, seals, and internal engine parts. Only PremiumCARE covers the Power Train Control Module (PCM), which monitors the air/fuel mix to improve performance and fuel economy and to help control pollution.


All plans cover your transmission, including gaskets, seals, and internal parts. On 4x4 and AWD vehicles, the transfer case and internal components are also covered. Only PremiumCARE protects external items like transmission mounts, cooler lines, and linkage.

Rear-Wheel Drive

With any Ford Protect ESP plan, you'll get the same coverage for the Rear-Wheel Drive Axle assembly. However, for 4x4 and all-wheel-drive vehicles, the front-drive axle is also covered.

Front-Wheel Drive

Each Ford Protect ESP plan offers identical coverage for the Front-Wheel-Drive Axle assembly, protecting all internal parts as well as the half shafts. Additionally, on 4x4 and AWD vehicles, this coverage extends to the rear-drive axle.


Starting with BaseCARE, Ford Protect ESP plans cover most steering components, like the power steering pump, steering gear, and steering linkages. PremiumCARE expands coverage to include items like the steering column and advanced steering components.


Starting with BaseCARE, Ford Protect ESP plans cover basic brake system parts (except for friction components). ExtraCARE and PremiumCARE cover more advanced brake elements, like the anti-lock brake module and sensors.


Most front suspension parts, like ball joints, control arms, and Macpherson struts are covered from BaseCARE to PremiumCARE. If you tow, only PremiumCARE covers rear suspension parts and advanced suspension systems.

A/C and Heating

BaseCARE covers basic air-conditioning components like the compressor, evaporator, and condenser. ExtraCARE and PremiumCARE each add additional coverage of AC and heating components, including the automatic temperature control system.


From BaseCARE up, Ford Protect ESP plans cover parts like the alternator, voltage regulator, starter, fuel pump, and wiring harnesses. PremiumCARE adds coverage for convenience features like power windows, mirrors, door locks, and sunroof.


ExtraCARE plans and above cover power seats, windows, locks,   electronic instrument panel, compass, and thermometer. PremiumCARE   covers factory-installed parts like the anti-theft system, GPS, reverse   camera, keyless entry, and hybrid parts (except the battery).


Only PremiumCARE covers all the vehicle's emissions system parts.   These include all advanced electronic emission control modules, sensors,   and actuators (excluding the exhaust or catalytic converter).
