Being your motor’s lifeblood, oil is stored in an oil pan, affixed to the motor’s bottom and located under your automobile. All motor’s moving parts must be lubricated by motor oil for proper functioning. Otherwise, they will wear out pretty fast and cause the motor’s failure.

An oil filter keeps the oil clean plus protects it from any contaminants. If you fail to substitute filter regularly, it will clog and hinder oil’s transfer to the motor.

Ford’s technicians state that regular oil plus filter substitution allows the motor to reach its maximum productivity. Moreover, the correctly chosen oil assists in keeping your motor clean, reducing its wearout plus maximizing its performance. Basically, the proper oil is able to enhance your motor’s fuel economy by up to 2%.

Contemporary automobiles demand oil substitution less frequently than their predecessors. As a rule, your automobile may run about 8,000 miles with no oil changes needed. But the majority of modern Ford vehicles are able to run faultlessly for up to 10,000 miles. However, everything depends on your car’s specifications.

The oil light flashes on the dash only when oil level is very low or doesn’t have enough pressure, but, actually, you should inspect everything regularly. Thus, having come home, check the oil level by the dipstick. You must do the following: pull the dipstick, wipe it, put it back, pull it out and check the level. If it’s low, just add the appropriate oil but nothing else is required from you.

However, if the oil level is very low but the sensor shows that it’s ok, it’s time to examine the sensor itself.
