How Often to Get 2020 Ford Transit Connect Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 Ford Transit Connect? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 2020 Transit Connect’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Transit Connect may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford Transit Connect. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2020 Ford Transit Connect?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Ford Transit Connect. Ford has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2020 Transit Connect. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Transit Connect’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the 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.

2020 Ford Transit Connect Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Ford Transit Connect motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Ford Transit Connect 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 Transit Connect oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
