Usually, oil works efficiently before your automobile drives 10,000 miles or up to a year. The computer features a service recommendation, taking into account when you last replaced the oil and how heavy the automobile was driven.

Ford advises not to drive more than a year or 10,000 miles without oil substitution. As soon as you notice the dash oil service light flashing, replace the oil in the nearest 2 weeks, and don’t exceed 500 miles with your old oil.

How Much Oil Does A Ford Escape Take?

The 2021 Ford Escape with the 1.5L engine (engine code EcoBoost) takes 5 quarts (with filter) of 5W-20 synthetic oil. The Ford Escape with a 2.0L engine (engine code Ecoboost) takes 5.7 quarts (with filter) of 5W-20 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

Oil is a key element for your automobile’s proper functioning. As any motor consists of a number of moving details, they permanently rub against one another. Some time passes and these parts began to heat up plus create friction. Lubricating these metal parts, oil assists them to operate correctly with no friction generated as it was initially created for heat dispersing.

When oil is added to your motor, it’s golden brown. But it gets black plus sludgy when it becomes old. Moreover, it can induce your automobile to emit a burning smell. That happens because it purifies the moving metal details and gathers all dirt plus build-up which emerges on them. Oil is the most efficient while it’s clean and that’s why regular oil substitution is a must.

One of the best engine oils for Ford Escapes is Pennzoil Platinum. This oil is designed to provide superior protection against wear and tear, as well as offering excellent fuel economy. It’s also formulated with Active Cleansing Agents™, which work to keep your engine clean and running smoothly. If you’re looking for a high-quality oil that will protect your vehicle, Pennzoil Platinum is a great option.

Checking The Engine Oil

  1. Make sure the vehicle is on level ground.
  2. Turn the engine off and wait a few minutes for the oil to drain into the oil pan.
  3. Set the parking brake and ensure the gearshift is securely latched in P (Park) (automatic transmissions) or 1 (First) (manual transmissions).
  4. Open the hood. Protect yourself from engine heat.
  5. Locate and carefully remove the engine oil level indicator (dipstick).
  6. Wipe the indicator clean. Insert the indicator fully, then remove it again.
  7. If the oil level is within the MIN and MAX marks or the lower and upper holes, the oil level is acceptable. DO NOT ADD OIL.
  8. If the oil level is below the MIN mark or the lower hole, engine oil must be added to raise the level within the normal operating range.
  9. If required, add engine oil to the engine. Refer to Adding engine oil in this chapter.
  10. Do not overfill the engine with oil. Oil levels above the MAX mark or upper hole may cause engine damage. If the engine is overfilled, some oil must be removed from the engine by an authorized dealer.
  11. Put the indicator back in and ensure it is fully seated.

    2019 ford escape se 1.5l turbo. Engine oil level on delivery was 1/2 ” above max. First oil change 6 months later dealer does same thing. manual says 5 qts with filter change but this amount will always be overfill. this problem is all over the forums. dealers have no answer just do what the book say. it seems 4qts is just a shade higher then max. do thousands of fords have the wrong dip stick or typo in the owners manual, nobody has any answers for this and can’t figure out how much oil to use or ask for. have you run in to this?
