How Often to Change 2018 Ford Expedition Oil

Need more info about 2018 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.”

Your 2018 Expedition’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change 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, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ford if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, 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.

2018 Ford Expedition Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Expedition engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Expedition’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Expedition oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Expedition exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
