If you want to keep your vehicle at peak performance, then you should make sure that you are regularly changing your filter and your oil. Fresh oil will ensure that your engine is properly lubricated and protected. If you don't take your vehicle in for periodic oil changes, then your engine will experience metal-on-metal contact that can lead to serious problems. If you're in need of an oil change, then come to your Ford dealership in Maryland, and our factory-trained team can make sure that you are getting the exact kind of oil your vehicle needs to operate at peak performance. When you use the right oil, you will be able to improve your vehicle's MPG by as much as 2%.


If your Ford vehicle is a model year 2007 or older, then you should probably get an oil change every 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. If you have a Ford vehicle that is a model year 2008 or newer, then you should be getting oil changes every six months or every 7,500 miles. There is a handful of other conditions that would lead you to have to change your oil more often. This includes towing heavy loads, idling often, or operating your vehicle at low speeds for a long time. If any of these apply to your vehicle, then you should get your oil changed more regularly. Off-roading or driving around dust can also cause you to need more oil changes. If your vehicle runs on E85 fuel more than 50% of the time, then this will apply to you as well. You should always check your Ford Owner's guide so you can determine how often to change your oil.


Ford vehicles also come outfitted with the intelligent oil-life monitor™ (IOLM) system, which will let you know when your vehicle is in need of an oil change. Alerts that read "Engine Oil Change Soon" or "Oil Change Required" will show up when you have to change your oil. This system will also send an alert if it sees that you need maintenance on your filter, or if you have low fuel pressure. Feel free to use the Ford Owner maintenance scheduler tool that is available as well. Just enter the required information, and you will be able to see when you should visit your Ford dealer in MD for an oil change.
