When to Change 1995 Ford Escort Engine Oil

Need more info about 1995 Ford Escort oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1995 Escort’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your Escort may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford Escort. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1995 Ford Escort motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1995 Ford Escort vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Escort's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Escort by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

1995 Ford Escort Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Escort engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Ford Escort engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Escort 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
