Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Ford Bronco II

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford Bronco II? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ford Bronco II engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Bronco II oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Bronco II exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
