Oil Change Advice in Dunn, NC
Today’s vehicles are some of the most technologically advanced machines ever produced. Even an oil change is a more complex process than it used to be. At Dunn Benson Ford, our expert Ford Service technicians have the knowledge, experience, and tools to make sure the job gets done right.
Why Is It Important to Change Your Oil Regularly?
Regular oil and filter changes keep impurities from building up in your engine, which helps your vehicle last longer and run more efficiently. Our technicians will ensure that you’re using the proper grade of engine oil, which can contribute to improving your gas mileage by as much as 2 percent.*
How Often Should You Change Your Oil?
Everyone drives differently, but rest assured, we know your vehicle, and we can help maintain it at the appropriate intervals. You probably don’t need an oil change as frequently as you think. 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 the Intelligent Oil Life Monitor located in your vehicle’s instrument cluster message center.
