Ford Oil Change Advice in Alabama

Oil Change
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.

You want to maintain your vehicle and keep it in great shape. Regular oil and filter changes help your vehicle run with optimum efficiency. When you use the proper grade of engine oil, you can improve your mpg by as much as 2 percent.*

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.

Picture Of A Mechanic Giving A Car An Oil Change - Ernest McCarty Ford

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. At Ernest McCarty Ford, our service techs have the knowledge and parts to get your oil change done right no matter what make or model vehicle you drive. 

Why Should I Change My Oil?

The oil in an automobile engine helps keep all of the moving parts lubricated, which reduces both friction and heat. Eventually, the oil starts to break down and becomes contaminated with dirt and debris, which can clog the oil filter. However, most oil changes also include replacing the oil filter.

Why Is It Important to Change My Oil at Regular Intervals?

Having a regular maintenance schedule will help you remember when it's time to bring in your car for an oil change. Getting regular oil changes will help your vehicle run more efficiently, last longer, and improve your gas mileage. In fact, when you use the proper grade of engine oil, you can improve your mpg by as much as 2%*.  

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

Everyone drives differently, and every vehicle has different oil needs. For example, certain vehicles can go up to 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. In newer Fords, you can also check the Intelligent Oil Life Monitor located in your vehicle's instrument cluster message center.
