Our Suggestions For Changing Your Oil

 Top Oil Change Advice
Today's vehicles are some of the most technologically advanced machines ever produced. Even an oil change isn't as basic as it used to be. Our expert Ford Service techs know their stuff and have the right parts to help make sure the job gets done right.

Why it's important to get your oil changed at regular intervals.

Keep your vehicle operating at peak performance by bringing it into Jack Powell Ford, your local Ford dealership, for regular oil changes in Mineral Wells. When you use clean oil, your engine will be properly lubricated so it functions correctly. If your vehicle isn't getting periodic oil changes, then your engine might run into some issues with metal-on-metal contact that could possibly lead to some severe problems. When it is time for an oil change, bring your vehicle into Jack Powell Ford, your local Ford dealership, and allow our factory-trained team of service techs to provide your car, truck or SUV with the oil change that it needs. When you bring your vehicle to us for an oil change, you can be sure that you're getting the correct type of oil your vehicle needs, which can improve your MPG by as much as 2%.

The right oil change at the right time.

If your Ford is a model year 2007 or older, you should most likely be changing your oil every six months or 5,000 miles, whichever happens to come first. If your Ford vehicle is a model year 2008 or newer, you should probably be changing your oil every 7,500 miles or every six months. There are some cases where you should change your oil at a more regular rate. If you're consistently hauling heavy loads, idling, or driving at lower speeds for extended periods of time, then you should most likely change your oil at a more regular rate.

If you are driving in dusty conditions or off-roading a lot, then you should be checking your oil more often. If your vehicle is using E85 fuel more than half of your driving time, you should probably check your oil at a more constant rate. Always make sure you check your Ford Owner's guide to figure out your exact oil change intervals.

The Works™: An oil change and much more.

You can be notified of when your vehicle needs an oil change via the available intelligent oil-life monitorâ„¢ (IOLM) system on your vehicle's instrument cluster display. An alert that says something like "Engine Oil Change Soon" or "Oil Change Required" will populate that area when it is time for an oil change if your Ford has this feature. This system also tells you when you need your fuel filters changed or if your fuel pressure is lower than it should be. Feel free to use the maintenance scheduler tool that is available on the Ford Owner site to see when you should be bringing your vehicle into Jack Powell Ford, your local Ford dealership, to get the oil change in Mineral Wells that your vehicle needs to stay running how it should be running.
