When to Change 2008 Ford Expedition Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Ford Expedition’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 changing your 2008 Expedition’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your Expedition may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ford Expedition. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2008 Ford Expedition?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2008 Ford Expedition motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2008 Expedition.

During your oil change service, a technician will change your Expedition's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2008 Ford Expedition Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford Expedition motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ford Expedition engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ford Expedition oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Expedition spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
