Why oil changes are important

Proper engine and gear lubrication are essential to reduce the friction between all the moving parts under the hood that causes overheating. Getting your oil changed every 7,500 miles will help to maintain your Ford's value and longevity. Sticking to recommended oil changes can also help you save money by helping prevent more costly and avoidable repairs due to non-lubricated engine parts and help you maintain your Ford's fuel efficiency. 

How to check oil levels

Checking your Ford's oil is an easy process that can be done from the comfort of your own home. To get an accurate reading, all you have to do is follow the simple steps below:

  • 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
