2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Ford Explorer Sport Trac motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Ford Explorer Sport Trac engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford Explorer Sport Trac oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
