The expert maintenance staff at Red McCombs Ford know that your oil filter is not usually at the top of your mind. Oil Filters may usually go unseen, but that doesn't mean that they aren't important when it comes to keeping your Ford healthy and driving at supreme efficiency. For optimal engine performance, your Ford's engine needs the oil to be filtered to remove any impurities. This helps to reduce critical wear on the engine components and extend the life of your vehicle.
Knowing When Your Ford Needs a New Oil Filter
As a general rule of thumb, you should change out your oil filter every time you get an oil change. A lot of service centers are still recommending that vehicles get their oil changed every 3,000 miles, but for your modern Ford vehicles you can most likely go twice that distance before needing an oil change. Every vehicle is different, so you should refer to your owner's manual to make sure that you are getting your oil changed and your oil filter replaced on the best schedule for your particular Ford.
Bringing Your Ford to the Red McCombs Service Center
Your Check Engine light being on could be a sign that you need to change your oil filter earlier than planned, and you should take your vehicle to the service center to make sure there is not a serious issue with your engine. If you are at the service center for a regularly scheduled oil change or because you are noticing issues, our expertly trained certified technicians will handle your Ford with expert care. They will then let you know if there are any issues and what the best course of action is to get your car back into tip top condition.
