How Often to Get 2014 Ford C-Max Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Ford C-Max? Get the advice you need at 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.”

Your 2014 C-Max’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your C-Max may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ford C-Max. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Ford C-Max

  • Should I check my Ford C-Max motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your C-Max’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? 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 C-Max spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
