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

You want to maintain your vehicle and keep it in great shape. Regular oil and filter changes help your vehicle run with optimum efficiency. When you use the proper grade of engine oil, you can improve your mpg by as much as 2 percent*.

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.

Oil Change Frequently Asked Questions

At JPS Ford, we get a lot of people coming to us for oil changes around Minden, LA. But we get just as many wondering why they need to get their oil changed regularly, and what the importance of an oil change is for the longevity of their vehicles. That's why we've compiled the following page - to be a resource for you to learn more about the oil change services we offer here and why they're so important.

Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Engine oil lubricates important components of your vehicle's engine and drivetrain, helping parts from rubbing together in metal-on-metal contact and ensuring seamless engine operation. Oil also prevents friction that can result in a vehicle overheating. Over time, though, engine oil loses its capacity to properly lubricate your engine's critical parts, requiring it to be changed.

How Often Do I Need An Oil Change?

Your Ford is unique, as are its recommended service intervals and recommended oil change intervals. Most modern vehicles, however, require an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Your vehicle's oil change interval should be discoverable in your owner's manual. Of course, you could always ask the experts here at the JPS Ford service center!

What's Synthetic Oil and How Is It Different from Conventional Oil?

Conventional oil is produced by refining crude oil directly. Synthetic oil begins as conventional oil, but is even further refined to give it improved stability and lubrication properties, plus improved breakdown that often results in less frequent oil changes.

Does My Ford Need Synthetic Oil?

Conventional oil works fine for many vehicles, but that doesn't mean there aren't still benefits to choosing synthetic oil. Some synthetic oils, for instance, are designed for use in high-mileage vehicles. Others produce less "sludge" or deposits, making them ideal to start using in your new Ford before buildup accrues. If you'd like to know what the best oil for your Ford is, contact us or visit our service center, and our Ford-certified service experts will be happy to help you find the right oil for your needs.
