High Mileage Oil Change Risks

Following Higher Mileage Oil Change Intervals is Risky

One of the most common mistakes made by Ford owners is driving too many miles between oil changes. This can lead to major problems and void your warranty in some cases. Don't let these avoidable problems happen to you! The certified technicians at Skyline Ford in Salem and Keizer, OR, are here to help! We have made it easier than ever to keep up with your regular oil changes and help you avoid any possible damage to your engine.

Risks of Driving Too Far Between Oil Changes

With higher miles racked up between oil changes come higher risks for engine damage and unwanted sediments entering into your engine. To understand these risks you have to understand a little bit about how your engine works.

Your pistons and other mechanical parts are moving and functioning in an extreme environment ranging from freezing temperatures to hundreds of degrees. This is possible due to the viscosity, or ability of your oil, to flow and maintain proper lubrication. However, over time the oil's ability to lubricate and protect your engine deteriorates. Your oil filter starts to become clogged with sediment and other contaminants and also loses its effectiveness. That is why it is so important to follow your vehicle's recommended oil change intervals set out in your owner's manual. Our friendly technicians can also help you determine when you should have your oil changed.  Many of our customers also prefer using synthetic oil, which has a longer operating life, and can mean more time driving and less time having your oil changed!
