The oil quality that goes into your engine will affect its performance and efficiency. At LaFontaine Ford of Birch Run, we use Motorcraft® oil which Ford has specifically approved. This oil is held to the highest production standards and provides your engine with everything it needs to operate to its full potential.
Drivers looking for essential engine lubrication can turn to conventional oil. Without the added benefits of synthetic oil, conventional oil is generally found at a lower price. Many newer vehicles suggest synthetic or semi-synthetic, so check your driver’s manual. We recommend drivers change conventional oil every 3,000 miles.
Synthetic Oil offers the highest level of performance and protection for your engine. The addition of special conditioners and additives helps clean your engine and prevent sludge buildup while performing its necessary lubrication duties. We recommend drivers change synthetic oil every 7,500 miles.
In between synthetic and conventional oil is a synthetic blend; this is a more cost-effective option for drivers who want the benefits of full synthetic without paying for it. We recommend drivers change synthetic-blend oil every 5,000 miles.
Diesel engines require special engine oil to keep up with the high demands and extreme conditions of their engines. We recommend diesel vehicles have their oil changed every 5,000 miles. Other factors such as frequent towing or driving on dirt roads may cause your engine oil to break down and require replacement sooner than this.
High mileage engine oil is precisely engineered to help older engines resist common issues such as oil leaks or sludge build-up. Once your Ford gets to around 75,000 miles, it is good considering switching to a high mileage oil for your next oil change.
