Ford Oil and Filter Change
Your regular oil change is one of the most common maintenance items on your vehicle. Oil helps protect your engine by removing harmful abrasives that could damage your engine, and lubricates essential components.
When to change your oil will depend on your vehicle and driving conditions, however here are some guidelines:
|Kilometres||Vehicle Use Definition|
|4,000 – 7,999 km||Extreme Usage
– Regular heavy towing and hauling
– Extreme hot or cold operation
|8,000 – 11,999 km||Special Usage
– Extended idling
– Extended hot or cold operation
– Moderate or off-road conditions
|12,000 – 16,000 km||Normal Usage
– Normal commuting with highway driving
– Minimal to moderate load or towing
– Flat to moderately hilly roads
– No extended idling
Your vehicle may be equipped with an oil change indicator light to let you know when it’s time to change the oil for your vehicle.
