Oil Change Advice

Allow Van Bortel Ford to Offer Our Assistance with Oil Changes

Ford cars, SUVs and pickup trucks are incredibly advanced vehicles that offer the performance, safety and technology that drivers desire. It is of critical importance to maintain the health of your Ford through routine minor service tasks, so you can enjoy it like it was intended for many years and miles to come. This indeed holds true for oil changes, and we encourage our customers in the Rochester, Fairport, Victor and Pittsford areas to explore the helpful advice below.

Change Your Oil at Regular Intervals

We know our customers are busy, and do not wish to spend a great deal of their time on automotive services if possible. The good news is that you actually can change your oil less frequently than many drivers assume. Certain new Ford automobiles can drive for 10,000 miles before the next oil change, while some older model-years may require every 5,000 miles. Either way, by changing your oil at regular intervals, you will optimize the efficiency of your engine and keep it running smoothly.

So, when are you due for an oil change?

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.
