How Often to Change 2007 Ford Escape Oil

Need more info about 2007 Ford Escape oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Ford recommends changing your 2007 Escape’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ford Escape. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Ford Escape

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Escape engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Escape’s 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 Escape exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
