Ford recommends having your 2012 Ford Edge’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Edge in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your Edge may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

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.

2012 Ford Edge Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford Edge? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Ford Edge engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford Edge oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Edge exhaust smoke grayish 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 damaged cylinder walls.
