When to Change 1993 Ford Escort Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Ford Escort’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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 1993 Escort’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Escort may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ford Escort. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

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

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1993 Ford Escort motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1993 Escort. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Escort’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Escort by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

1993 Ford Escort Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Escort engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford Escort engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Escort 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 Escort spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
