Oil Change Service at Advantage Ford

How often will my car need its oil changed?

Depending on the make and model of your car, as well as your driving habits, this number will vary.

For models 2008 and newer, Ford recommends an oil change every 6 months or 7,5000 miles. For 2007 and older models, Ford suggests more frequent intervals, about every 5,000 miles.

Why are regular oil changes so important?

Oil changes keep your engine coated in oil, protecting your engine from breakdown due to friction between engine parts. Keeping your engine coated in oil also stops your engine from overheating. Both of these things keep your engine healthy and save you an expensive trip to the maintenance shop.

Plus, when you use the proper grade of engine oil, your gas mileage and efficiency can improve.

Can I check my oil by myself?

You can. Follow these steps to easily check the level and condition of your oil with a dipstick:

  1. First, make sure your engine has been turned off for at least ten minutes.
  2. Pop your hood and locate the dipstick.
  3. Pull out the dipstick and wipe it across a lint-free cloth.
  4. Then place the dipstick back in the reservoir and pull it out.
  5. Check for an oily film on the dipstick's end.

If you can see that the oil is a silty dark brown or black with floating particles, it's time to bring your car in for service.
