How does the Ford Edge oil life indicator work?
The software-based Ford Intelligent Oil Life Monitor can determine if you need to change your oil after a year. This system considers your driving habits, climate, and other conditions to calculate the appropriate oil change interval. Your vehicle’s recommended oil change interval will depend on these operating characteristics and the time you take to change your oil. To prolong the life of your car, you should follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule.
If your vehicle has an indicator on the dash that says “Low Engine Oil,” you should check the oil level regularly to keep the engine running smoothly. Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle’s engine, and if you’re driving one with low oil levels, you could be causing significant damage to your engine. Fortunately, the Ford Intelligent Oil Life system has some helpful tools to help you do it yourself, saving you a lot of money in the long run.
The engine’s oil life is directly related to the operating temperature, and the oil temperature varies with driving conditions. For example, extreme short trips generate enough oil and water to cause significant engine wear and tear. Lower temperatures mean high contamination. This feature can automatically adjust the service interval based on the engine’s operating characteristics and the driver’s driving habits. For example, if your engine is experiencing a prolonged period of cold weather, the indicator will tell you that it needs an oil change in the next 5,000 miles.
