How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil Change

At DeNooyer Ford, we hope you realize that your car’s overall health is nearly as important as your health because when you’re driving, your safety depends on the health of your car. Regular oil changes are essential to keeping your car healthy on Vicksburg roads. Recent improvements in engine oil and auto technologies have made it possible to go even longer regarding oil change frequency than in decades past. But how often should you change your oil? Most new Ford models, like the F-150, have an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles but check your owner’s manual to be sure.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

So, back to the question, “How often should you change your oil?” Plan on changing your oil every 7,500-10,000 miles, but if your Portage or Schoolcraft drives include any of the types of driving below, your oil change frequency will need to be more often:

  • Commercial use
  • Off-roading
  • Towing
  • Performance driving or racing

Oil Change Tips

Now that you are aware of your oil change frequency, check out these oil change tips from the DeNooyer Ford service team at DeNooyer Ford.

  • Engine oil disintegrates over time, even if you don’t drive your vehicle often, so still ensure you change your oil every six months.
  • Find out if your vehicle takes synthetic or conventional oil. Synthetic oil costs more, but it enhances the overall performance of some high-performance cars.
  • Change your oil filter every time you change your engine oil. The parts center can help you order your new Ford Escape’s correct oil filter and oil.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

It’s wise to check your oil level at least once per month to prevent future problems on your Three Rivers drives. Watch for any oil appearance, texture, aroma, or color change because that could indicate serious problems, and if you’re low on oil, schedule service with DeNooyer Ford immediately!
