How Often to Change 2004 Ford Expedition Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2004 Ford Expedition? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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 changing your 2004 Expedition’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Expedition may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ford Expedition. 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 Expedition?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2004 Ford Expedition motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2004 Expedition. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Expedition’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Expedition by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

2004 Ford Expedition Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Expedition engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford Expedition engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Expedition exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
