When to Change 2018 Ford EcoSport Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Ford EcoSport’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2018 EcoSport’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your EcoSport may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ford EcoSport. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2018 Ford EcoSport Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford EcoSport motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ford EcoSport engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford EcoSport oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
