Customized Solutions

When something works properly, we say it's running like a "Well Oiled Machine." That's especially true for your vehicle's engine. Properly maintaining the fluids and filters will not only make it run more efficiently, it can markedly increase your vehicle's lifespan. When it comes time to servicing your Ford, trust the Factory-Trained Service Technicians at Mt. Orab Ford. We know the unique products and techniques needed to keep the latest, most advanced cars, trucks and SUVs running like new.

We don't believe in a "One Service Fits All" approach. We tailor our service to what you drive and how you drive it. Some vehicles run efficiently with conventional engine oil, others require synthetic or a synthetic blend. Your vehicle may also not need oil and filter services nearly as often as you might think, which can save you time and money.

True or False?
There are a lot of myths about engine oil that people have been touting as fact for generations. 

Your vehicle's engine oil should be changed every 3,000 miles. FALSE
This is one of the longest running myths surrounding engine oil. While the 3,000 miles between oil changes rule may still be true for some vehicles, many manufacturers currently recommend engine oil service be performed between 5,000 - 10,000 miles, or due to time between services. Additionally, most modern vehicles come equipped with engine oil life monitors that indicate the remaining life (or usefulness) of your engine's oil. At Mt. Orab Ford we're happy to help you choose the factory-recommended maintenance schedule that makes the most sense for your vehicle and driving habits.

If the oil's black, it's time for a change. FALSE
Black engine oil isn't necessarily a sign that it's time for a change, it just means that your engine oil is doing its job. Over time engines accumulate dirt, grease, and other particulates that most modern oils are designed to clean while circulating throughout the engine block. 

Once you go synthetic, you can't go back. FALSE
Contrary to popular belief, it is not harmful to your engine in any way to switch between synthetic and conventional oils. While synthetic oils generally offer superior cleaning properties and durability in extreme temperatures (very useful for Ohio winters), both varieties will work so long as they match the viscosity outlined in your owner's manual. 

You don't need to change your oil filter with every oil change. FALSE
This could not be more false. Old oil filters - if they're properly doing their job - will contain contaminants from the old oil that can enter your engine and potentially cause damage. To avoid this, simply install a new oil filter when you change your engine oil.

One-Stop Service
Properly maintaining your engine's oil is one of the single most important things you can do to extend the life of your vehicle. Oil is a lubricant that creates a barrier between the moving components in your engine. This is essential because all of that power under the hood causes a great deal of friction. Ensuring proper engine lubrication can help you avoid much more costly repairs down the road.It's imperative to stay on top of your vehicle's maintenance needs. Mt. Orab Ford provides a one-stop service solution that includes a synthetic blend oil and oil filter replacement, tire rotation and pressure check, belts, brakes and hoses inspection, fluid-top off, battery test, and more.
