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 5,000 miles 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.
