When to Change 2008 Ford Edge Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Ford Edge? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2008 Edge’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 Edge may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford Edge. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Ford Edge Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Ford Edge. Ford has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2008 Edge. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Edge's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important 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 preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 Ford Edge

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Edge engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Ford Edge engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ford Edge 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Edge spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
