How many miles can I drive before my oil needs to be changed and my oil life is up?
The oil life percent on Ford is based on an interval of 7,500 - 10,000 miles driven in light conditions. There is an intelligent monitoring system in place that tells whether the vehicle has driven in heavy conditions such as towing, steep hills, or offroad that will decrease the oil life, and a typical interval in those conditions is around 5,000 miles.
It is always a safe bet to have the oil changed around 5,000 - 7,500 miles if you want to take extra care. Great maintenance can lead to the longevity of your vehicle.
