How Often Should You Change Your Oil?


Taking care of your car and keeping up routine maintenance on your vehicle means it can continue taking care of you and your passengers out on the Schererville roads. Luckily for Munster drivers, most new Ford models today have an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. But it’s always check your owner’s manual for specifics on how to change oil in a Ford Escape, and if you have questions, contact Webb Ford.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

How often should you change your oil in a Ford Escape? Some cars have a higher oil change frequency than others and vice versa, but the general rule of thumb is to change your oil every 7,500-10,000 miles. If your drives around Munster or target_city_2%% regularly include any of the types of driving listed below, you need to adjust your oil change frequencies accordingly:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven consistently. If you don’t drive often, you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our parts center can assist you in getting the right oil filter for your Ford.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Check your oil level at least once a month to avoid problems when you’re out and about on Griffith streets. Things like changes in your oil’s color and texture can be a sign of serious problems.
