Your engine is the sum of many different parts. During its operation, many of these parts come in close contact with each other at high speeds. To combat friction and what would be worn parts, your engine requires oil to lubricate its internal components. This allows for your engine to operate smoothly without risk of part damage, overheating, or even your engine catching fire.
Your oil change intervals will depend on both your driving habits and the specific type of oil you are currently using. Vehicles with synthetic oil can go up to 7,500 between oil changes, while vehicles with conventional oil should have theirs changed after 3,000 miles. Right in between is semi-synthetic oil, which should be changed every 5,000 miles. Drivers who spend a lot of their time towing or on dirt roads should also consider more frequent oil changes. Staying on top of regular oil changes is imperative, as old oil can become contaminated and break down. This can lead to poor engine performance and harmful wear to its parts.
We invite drivers from throughout the Flushing, MI, region to visit us for a Ford-certified oil change. We use genuine OEM engine oil by Motorcraft® that is specifically approved by Ford and Lincoln to match the needs of your vehicle.
