Asked by GuruBHW8N Jan 02, 2019 at 05:50 PM about the 2015 Ford Explorer Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

How many miles should an oil change be done? Will the message on the dash be
accurate when on?

2 Answers


Under typical driving conditions you should get at least 5000 miles from an oil change. Most vehicles with sensors "watch" your oil and let you know when a change is needed but I will always defer to looking at the oil and my miles to decide without going over the 5K mark.


I suggest setting a schedule of every 5,000 miles instead of using the reminder.
