How Often to Change 2001 Ford Expedition Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2001 Ford Expedition? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 2001 Ford Expedition’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Expedition 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford Expedition. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2001 Ford Expedition Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford Expedition motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Expedition’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Expedition 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. 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 Expedition spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
