Your engine’s various components need proper lubrication for them to function as it should. This requires motor oil, and fresh oil has better lubrication properties to protect your engine from damage. This is because all motor oil degrades over time, leading to the buildup of contaminants. If it becomes sludge-like, it can lead to costly engine damage. Routine oil changes can help prevent this, and you’ll find the best customer service at Port Orchard Ford in Port Orchard, Washington. We can help you with the daunting decision of which type of oil to use for your particular vehicle since there are so many types on the market now. We can then quickly and correctly change your oil to get you back to your busy schedule. Be sure to check our service specials, then schedule an appointment to have your Ford’s oil changed.

When it comes to Ford oil changes, we are your local service department with experts in the area. We provide the following types of oil changes:
Conventional oil is derived from crude petroleum and is also known as Regular or Traditional Oil because it was the first type to be used. This oil is inexpensive, largely because it has little to no additives.
Also referred to as full-synthetic oil, this type is man-made from various chemicals and additives, specifically designed to enhance its performance properties. While it may be more expensive, it has improved viscosity and thermal resistance, to perform better within your Ford’s engine.
Semi-synthetic oil, or a synthetic blend, is a blend of the previous two types. The ratios of conventional to synthetic oil may vary between different options, but they will have no more than 30% synthetic oil. This is enough, however, to provide semi-synthetic oil with similar performance benefits. A good compromise between the two, it is also less expensive than full-synthetic motor oil.
Different additives are used in diesel oil to promote lubrication of diesel engines. This type is made for diesel engines exclusively.
