Frequently Asked Questions About Oil Changes

Q: Why are oil changes so important?

A: Oil changes are a crucial maintenance item for conventional gas engines. Your vehicle needs clean oil to lubricate all the moving parts and keep your most important components operating smoothly. Engine oil degrades or builds up sediments over time. The engine oil level can also decrease over time, requiring a top-off. Dirty oil or low oil can be detrimental to your engine because either issue can cause your engine to work harder than it should, leading to excessive wear and tear and, eventually, costly repairs if ignored.

Q: How often do I need an oil change?

A: Your vehicle owner's manual will list required services and the mileage intervals or months when they should be completed. Ford vehicles from 2008 and newer generally need an oil change about every 7,500 miles. Ford vehicles older than 2008 should get oil changes every 5,000 miles. If you are not sure about your vehicle's requirements, our team can help you find the information even if you own a vehicle from another brand.

Q: Which type of oil is best for my vehicle?

A: We recommend synthetic oil for your vehicle. The special composition resists degrading and lasts longer, allowing you to go longer between changes while maintaining optimum performance.

Q: How do I know if I need an oil change?

A: Aside from the recommended mileage intervals, you can look for warning signs that indicate when it's time for an oil change. If you notice any of the following, you should schedule services as soon as possible:

  • Dirty Oil: Check the oil dipstick and check for color, consistency, or any graininess in the oil
  • Leaking Oil: Notice any leaks under your vehicle
  • Indicator Lights: Check engine or oil pressure warning lights come on
