How Often to Get 2011 Ford Escape Oil Changes

Need more info about 2011 Ford Escape oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Ford recommends having your 2011 Ford Escape’s motor oil changed at regular 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, local climate,

2011 Ford Escape Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford Escape? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Ford Escape engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Escape spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
