Top Oil Change Advice

 Top Oil Change Advice
Today's vehicles are some of the most technologically advanced machines ever produced. Even an oil change isn't as basic as it used to be. Our expert Ford Service techs know their stuff and have the right parts to help make sure the job gets done right.

Why it's important to get your oil changed at regular intervals.

With today's hi‐tech vehicles, even something seemingly as simple as an oil change requires up‐to‐date knowledge of a vehicle's engine and its specs. You get that at Big Valley Automotive Ford Inc.. We have the right parts, tools and techs to help ensure your service is done correctly the first time.

The right oil change at the right time.

Everyone drives differently, but be assured: we know your vehicle. And we can help maintain it at the appropriate intervals. It's not as frequent as you think, so we can help save you time. In fact, with certain vehicles, you can go 10,000 miles in between oil changes.

For 2008 and newer model year vehicles, Ford recommends that you change your oil every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

For 2007 and older model-year vehicles, Ford recommends an oil change every 5,000 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. You can also check Intelligent Oil Life Monitor located in your vehicle's instrument cluster message center.

The Works™: An oil change and much more.

Paying close attention to your vehicle's owner's manual and its scheduled maintenance intervals at the recommended mileage, will help ensure that oil changes are done before any engine damage can occur.

For 2008 and newer model‐year vehicles, Ford recommends changing your oil every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

For 2007 and older model‐year vehicles, Ford recommends an oil change every 5,000miles or every six months, whichever comes first.

Another way to keep track is by watching the oil monitor message on your dashboard. Many newer‐model vehicles come equipped with the Intelligent Oil‐Life Monitor® that will inform you when it's time to change your oil and filter.
