When it comes to caring for your Ford vehicle, the basic of maintenance items is also the most important. Of course, we're talking about oil changes. Your car's engine contains many metal parts that have to slide against each other thousands of times per minute. Due to a high friction coefficient, metal resists sliding, but engine oil provides the necessary lubrication for these parts to move freely and mitigate severe engine damage. It also helps keep things clean by removing contaminants via the oil filter.

Unfortunately, engine oil lifespan is finite. The filter will eventually reach its capacity, and heat will cause the oil to degrade and lose effectiveness. Changing the oil and filter at regular intervals will ensure your Ford can operate at peak performance and efficiency for as long as possible. Ford recommends changing the oil every 7,500 miles or six months, whichever comes first. But if you frequently transport heavy loads, idle or drive at low speeds for long periods, or drive in dusty conditions, you may need oil changes more often.
