Ford recommends changing your 2006 E-150’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your E-150 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ford E-150. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2006 Ford E-150 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Ford E-150 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Ford E-150 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Ford E-150 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
