How Often to Get 2011 Ford Expedition Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2011 Ford Expedition? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2011 Expedition’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Expedition in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your Expedition may need an oil change 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2011 Ford Expedition?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2011 Ford Expedition motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2011 Ford Expedition vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Expedition's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Ford Expedition

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford Expedition? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford Expedition engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Expedition oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Expedition exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
