1985 Ford Bronco Oil Change Service

When to Change 1985 Ford Bronco Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Ford Bronco? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Ford recommends changing your 1985 Bronco’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Bronco may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ford Bronco. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Ford Bronco Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Ford Bronco motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1985 Bronco. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Bronco’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Bronco by considering your driving style, and mileage.

1985 Ford Bronco Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford Bronco motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Bronco’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford Bronco oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
