Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Ford Escort

  • Should I check my Ford Escort motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford Escort engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford Escort 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
