Why are oil changes so important?

Today’s vehicles are more sophisticated than ever — and even something seemingly as simple as an oil change requires expert knowledge of a vehicle’s engine and its specs. You get that at Hoffman Ford. We have the right parts, technology and trained certified technicians to help ensure your service is performed correctly the first time.

How do I know my oil needs changing?

Your engine is the heart of your vehicle and relies on motor oil for cooling and lubrication. If there is an issue with the oil, your car won't run properly and can incur additional damage. Oil changes are one of the most critical vehicle services, so keeping on top of your oil maintenance with a Ford dealership oil change is essential for your vehicle's health.

Hoffman Ford has the experience and skilled technicians required to change your oil, no matter your car's model. You can be confident that we'll do the work right the first time, so your vehicle performs like it should.

The Value of an Oil Change

Motor oil is the lifeblood of the engine. It is located in the oil pan under the engine. When the car is running, it cycles through the engine to provide lubrication and a cooling effect. Lubrication prevents wear and friction on the engine's parts, and the coolness prevents overheating, promotes quietness and fights corrosion. The quality of the oil determines the performance of the vehicle.

As you drive your vehicle, the engine gets hot and breaks the oil down, which doesn't move through the engine well. Oil also gets dirty and will not clean the engine properly over time. Old oil can cause wear on moving parts, unnecessary friction and dirty components. All of these things may cause your vehicle to drive poorly.

Changing your oil will:

  • Improve your gas mileage: When the engine isn't running well, it consumes more fuel. With regular oil changes, your engine will run more efficiently and require less gas, potentially saving one gallon of gas each year.
  • Lubricate and cool components: Moving engine parts create friction and heat. Motor oil keeps these components cool and lubricated to prevent overheating and engine damage.
  • Remove debris: Old motor oil collects dirt and debris from inside the engine, which can lower its lifespan. Oil changes remove these particles and protect the engine.

Ford's Recommendations for an Oil Change

The vehicle's owner's manual is the first place to find suggestions on when to change your oil. It will tell you the ideal mileage intervals between changes, and Hoffman Ford will help you complete your oil change within these time frames. The standard benchmarks are:

  • Ford vehicles 2007 and older: Every 5,000 miles or six months (whichever comes first)
  • Ford vehicles 2008 and newer: Every 7,500 miles or six months (whichever comes first)

Newer vehicles will also display an oil change message on your dashboard. The Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor® analyzes oil quality and alerts you when it's time to change it.

Other Signs Your Vehicle Needs an Oil Change

Besides these benchmarks, other signals indicate it's time to bring your vehicle to Hoffman Ford for an oil change. These include:

  • Change in color (from honey brown to black) and consistency (from transparent to gritty).
  • Knocking, rumbling, grinding or roaring sounds under the hood.
  • Darker-than-usual exhaust smoke.
  • An oil smell inside your vehicle.
  • Oil spots in the driveway under the car.
  • Low engine oil.
  • A lit check oil indicator on your dashboard.

Our Works Package Provides More Than New Oil

A Works Package from Hoffman Ford will keep your vehicle running like it should. When you schedule an oil change with us, our technicians will recommend the best products and course of action for you, depending on how you use your vehicle. Then, we will install a new oil filter and replace the old, dirty oil with fresh, clean oil to keep your engine healthy.

Although you can do your own car's oil change, it can be a hassle. Due to the sophistication of today's cars, a simple service like changing oil requires knowledge of the engine specifications. Hoffman Ford recommends trusting our team to take care of this vital task. We have the expertise, tools and parts to choose the correct motor oil for your vehicle.
