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 it's important to get your oil changed at regular intervals.

You want to maintain your vehicle and keep it in great shape. Regular oil and filter changes help your vehicle run with optimum efficiency. When you use the proper grade of engine oil, you can improve your mpg by as much as 2 percent*.

The right oil change at the right time.

Everyone drives differently, but be assured: we know your vehicle. And we can help maintain it at the appropriate intervals. It's not as frequent as you think, so we can help save you time. In fact, with certain vehicles, you can go 10,000 miles in between oil changes.

For 2008 and newer model year vehicles, Ford recommends that you change 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 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. You can also check Intelligent Oil Life Monitor located in your vehicle's instrument cluster message center.
