When to Change 2001 Ford Excursion Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Ford Excursion’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 2001 Excursion’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Excursion may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ford Excursion. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2001 Ford Excursion Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford Excursion motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Ford Excursion 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Excursion spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
