Why Oil Changes are Important

Regularly scheduling oil changes every 7,500 miles will help to maintain your Ford's longevity and reliability. Not only that but doing so will also help you save money in the long run by reducing the risk of costly repairs due to non-lubricated engine parts. Proper engine and gear lubrication are essential to reduce the friction between all the moving parts under the hood that causes overheating. Cleaning your engine's oil can also help improve your Ford's fuel efficiency and make sure you are protecting your investment for the long haul.

How to Check Oil Levels

Don't wait, avoid costly repairs and unnecessary issues by checking your oil levels regularly to help maintain a reliable, safe, and efficient ride. Getting an accurate reading is easy, follow the simple steps below to ensure you get an accurate dipstick reading.

  • Ensure the oil is warm, at a normal operating temperature not hot or cold
  • Make sure your vehicle is on level ground
  • Review your Owner's Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level
  • Remove dipstick found under the hood
  • Clean thoroughly and insert again to get an accurate reading

Benefits of Synthetic Oil

Why choose synthetic oil? Synthetic oil is made from base oil, powder additives, and a carrier oil that enforces an even distribution of the additives. Similar to regular oil, synthetic oil should be changed out every 7,500 miles, as well as your oil filter simultaneously every oil change. Synthetic oil technological advantages include:

  • Uniform molecular size means less friction
  • Refinement and engineering reduce deposits
  • Additives boost protection and can clean engines
  • Better function in cold and extreme weather
  • Cleaner oil with fewer impurities
