When to Change 2017 Ford Expedition Engine Oil

Need more info about 2017 Ford Expedition oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 2017 Expedition’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 Type of Oil Does My Ford Expedition Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Ford Expedition motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 Ford Expedition vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Expedition’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire 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.

2017 Ford Expedition Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford Expedition motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Ford Expedition 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Expedition spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
