Why Visit Steven's Jersey City Ford for an Oil Change?

Everything You Need To Know About Oil Changes

An oil change is one of the most essential services that you will get for your car. Whether this is your first time getting an oil change, or you have done this many times before, it is essential to have a reliable service team who you can trust. Furthermore, there are certain routines you can get into to ensure your vehicle will continually run smoothly.

Why Do We Get Oil Changes?

The main reason we get oil changes is because our oil gets dirty after driving a while on the road. When you drive, your oil becomes sludgy, accrues dirt and grime, and slows down the efficiency of your engine. Not only that, dirty oil can also create more friction in your engine, causing it to overheat. Changing your oil just removes this dirty, sludgy mess and replaces it with clean oil that will help your engine run smoothly.

What Are the Benefits Of An Oil Change?

The main benefits of an oil change come from removing the dirty, sludgy oil and replacing it. Doing so increases the longevity of your vehicle and promotes better engine health. However, you also get a boost in fuel economy when you change your oil (as the dirt and grime in your dirty oil will no longer be hindering your engine's performance).

When Should I Get An Oil Change?

Your owner's manual can give you a better time frame for your specific make and model; however, the general rule of thumb is to have your oil change every 5,000 miles or so. The longer you wait to change your oil, though, the more damage it can do to your engine so it is better to get into an oil changing routine than to wait until the last minute.

Why are oil changes so important?

Regular oil and filter changes are very important to the life of your engine. That's because the right oil helps keep your vehicle's engine clean, reduces overall wear and maximizes its performance.

How do I know my oil needs changing?

Paying close attention to your vehicle's owner's manual and its scheduled maintenance intervals at the recommended mileage, will help ensure that oil changes are done before any engine damage can occur.

For 2008 and newer model‐year vehicles, Ford recommends changing your oil every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

For 2007 and older model‐year vehicles, Ford recommends an oil change every 5,000miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

Another way to keep track is by watching the oil monitor message on your dashboard. Many newer‐model vehicles come equipped with the Intelligent Oil‐Life Monitor® that will inform you when it's time to change your oil and filter.
