How Often to Get 2010 Ford Fusion Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Ford Fusion’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 2010 Ford Fusion’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your Fusion may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford Fusion. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Ford Fusion?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2010 Ford Fusion motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2010 Ford Fusion vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Fusion’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 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 preferences, and odometer.

2010 Ford Fusion Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Fusion engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Fusion’s 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 Fusion oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Fusion exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
