Your motor oil should be changed every 5,000-10,000 miles, depending on your vehicle’s model year and driving conditions. Many newer Ford vehicles have an Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor that can help you keep track of when an oil change is needed.
Between changes, your vehicle’s oil level can drop a bit within the normal range. However, if it drops to the “MIN” mark or lower between oil changes, you should take the vehicle to your local Ford Dealership and let the factory-trained technicians inspect it. The fix can be as simple as a new oil pan gasket.
