2020 Ford Expedition Oil Change

How Often to Change 2020 Ford Expedition Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Ford Expedition’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2020 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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 2020 Ford Expedition?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2020 Ford Expedition motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2020 Expedition. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Expedition’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important 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, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2020 Ford Expedition

  • Should I check my Ford Expedition motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford Expedition engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford Expedition oil at home? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
