When to Change 2016 Ford Escape Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Ford Escape? 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, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2016 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. No matter the mileage, your Escape may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ford if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Ford Escape?

Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Escape's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Escape by taking into account your driving habits, local climate,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 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 you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
