How Often to Change 1990 Ford Bronco Oil

Need more info about 1990 Ford Bronco oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Ford recommends changing your 1990 Bronco’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Bronco may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ford if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ford Bronco. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Ford Bronco Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1990 Ford Bronco motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1990 Bronco. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician 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 drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Bronco by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1990 Ford Bronco Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford Bronco? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford Bronco engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford Bronco 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Bronco exhaust smoke grayish 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 damaged cylinder walls.
