Oil Change

Oil Changes Made Easy

Changing oil is as essential as it gets when taking care of a car, truck, or SUV. No matter what your vehicle, if it has an internal combustion engine, it's going to need motor oil. While an oil change is on the simpler side of auto maintenance, many don't have the time or know-how to get the job done. In that case, the service center at Park Rapids Ford has your back.

Why is Changing Oil Important?

To make a long story short, motor oil lubricates your engine. It coats mechanisms and parts to reduce friction and improve efficiency. Fresh oil helps your engine perform at its best and mitigates parts failures and unnecessary wear and tear. Wait too long to get an oil change, and the results could range from poor performance to costly engine damage.

How Do I Know When to Change My Car's Oil?

The time to change your engine's oil can vary significantly depending on model, driving habits, time elapsed, miles driven, and more. A general rule of thumb is to have your oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles or at the end of every season. If in doubt, an automotive technician can help you determine whether it's time for a change and establish an oil-change schedule. 

Can I Do the Job Myself?

Technically, yes you could. But we strongly urge you to employ a certified technician for the job. The service staff at Park Rapids Ford have the education, experience, and practice to make sure your oil change is consistent, and effective every time. Each model has specific requirements for an oil change, and our technicians can make sure the job gets done right every time.
