How Often to Change 1986 Ford EXP Oil

Need more info about 1986 Ford EXP oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Ford recommends having your 1986 Ford EXP’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your EXP in the above table. No matter the mileage, your EXP may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford EXP. 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 EXP?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1986 Ford EXP motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1986 EXP. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your EXP's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your EXP by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

1986 Ford EXP Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Ford EXP engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ford EXP 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford EXP spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
