How Often to Change 2017 Ford C-Max Oil

Need more info about 2017 Ford C-Max oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 having your 2017 Ford C-Max’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your C-Max may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ford if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2017 Ford C-Max?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Ford C-Max motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 Ford C-Max vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your C-Max's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your C-Max by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Ford C-Max Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford C-Max? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Ford C-Max engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? 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. 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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.
