There should be no reason you should ever burn through the oil in your Ford car, truck or SUV. Maintaining a regular schedule of checking and changing your oil is as important to you vehicle as putting gas in it. When the time comes to get your oil changed out, schedule an appointment with the experts at Penske Ford.

How to Maintain Proper Oil Levels

Keeping an eye on the level and quality of the motor oil in your Ford car is getting even easier than ever. You can check it yourself whenever you stop for gas. Simply find your oil dipstick, wipe it clean and put it back in. Pull it out again and check to make sure the oil level is present between the two indicators on the dip stick. If it's low, fill it up. Check the color of the oil, as well. It should be either brown or black. If it looks a little off, bring your car into Penske Ford and we'll sort it out.
