How Often to Change 1990 Ford Country Squire Oil

Need more info about 1990 Ford Country Squire oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 1990 Country Squire’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your Country Squire may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ford Country Squire. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Ford Country Squire?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Ford Country Squire. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1990 Country Squire. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Country Squire's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and mileage.

1990 Ford Country Squire Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford Country Squire motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Ford Country Squire engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Country Squire oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Country Squire spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
