Getting a routine oil change completed is an essential function that helps your vehicle perform at its maximum abilities. Your Ford model does an outstanding job in so many conditions, from the bitter cold to scorching heatwaves. A Ford oil change protects engine parts from wear and tear, metal-on-metal grinding, reduced efficiency, and even failure. Your local Alexandria KY oil change experts assembled some information to show you the benefits of getting fresh motor oil in your model, and when it is time to come in for service. When you need your next oil change in Alexandria Kentucky, visit the Mike Castrucci Ford of Alexandria service center, and our technicians will get your vehicle running as good as new.

Replenishing your motor oil lubricates all the vital engine parts, but it also will enhance your fuel mileage by as much as 2 percent because your engine will run more efficiently. Using synthetic or synthetic blend motor oils reduce engine sludge and decrease the heat in your motor. For a 2007 or older Ford model, our Alexandria KY oil change experts recommend service every 5,000 miles or six months. Your Ford model can safely extend its service period to 7,500 miles if it is built in 2008 or sooner, but we recommend you to get an oil change every six months.


The task your Ford model performs can change how frequent you need an oil change. A Ford Super Duty F-250 does a lot of heavy-duty tasks while your commuter vehicle may do a lot of city driving. These vehicles may have a shorter duration for oil changes because they work harder and do a lot of stopping and starting. As your Alexandria KY oil change destination, we are here to help you develop a service plan that best suits your driving lifestyle.

Every Ford owner receives additional alerts from the Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor™ (IOLM) system if it is time to get fresh motor oil. If you need to replace your oil filter or if your vehicle faces low oil pressure, the gauge cluster or dashboard will display some form of "Change Engine Oil Soon" or "Oil Change Required" messages. The expert staff at your premier Alexandria KY oil change center will be happy to service your vehicle. Ask about our oil change specials, and we can help you save money in the process during your visit to Mike Castrucci Ford of Alexandria.
