Why do I need to have my oil changed?
Keeping your car in the best possible shape will keep you safer and save you money in the long run. Regular oil and filter changes will maximize your car's fuel efficiency, upping your mpg by up to two percent!* Plus, you'll avoid buildup or damage that could be costly to clean up later on.
When should I have my oil changed?
Ford knows its vehicles inside and out. As such, the manufacturer is the number one expert on the maintenance intervals they require. Those intervals may be longer than you think when it comes to oil changes. With certain models, in fact, you can go 10,000 miles in between.
For vehicles produced in 2008 or later, Ford suggests that you have your oil changed every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. For vehicles that are older than that, Ford recommends that you change your oil every 5,000 miles or six months. Remember to keep an eye on you vehicle's Intelligent Oil Life Monitor, located in the instrument cluster message center, as well.
