When to Change 2006 Ford Escape Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Ford Escape’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Your 2006 Escape’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Escape in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your Escape may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford Escape. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2006 Ford Escape?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2006 Ford Escape motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2006 Escape. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Escape's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Escape by taking into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Ford Escape

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford Escape? Engine oil lubricates 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 Escape engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Escape oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
