¿Cómo agrego aceite al motor de mi Ford?

Debes revisar el nivel de aceite del vehículo cada vez que llenas el tanque de combustible. Use the tips and instructions for checking the oil level and adding engine oil below.

Preparing to Check the Oil Level

  • Get a metal or plastic oil-fill funnel, an oil rag, and one or two quarts of the vehicle's correct grade of oil. You can find the grade in your Manual del Propietario.
  • Park the vehicle on level ground. If the vehicle is not level, the oil level may be incorrect when you check it.
  • Turn your engine off and then wait 10 minutes so all the engine’s oil drains into the oil pan.
  • Roll up or remove loose clothing, and keep your arms away from the cooling fan(s) when checking the oil. Los ventiladores se pueden encender automáticamente, aún con el motor apagado.

Checking and Adding Motor Oil  

  1. Abre el capó y busca la varilla de medición de aceite. Está cerca del motor y suele tener un mango de color brillante. If uncertain, refer to your vehicle's Manual del Propietario for the exact location of the dipstick and fill location.
  2. Pull the dipstick out, wipe the metal section clean with a rag, then fully insert it and remove it, your oil level is the highest point on the dipstick that is coated with oil.
    Note: If the oil level is between “MIN” and “MAX,” you don’t need to add oil and can replace the dipstick and close the hood. If the oil level is at or below “MIN,” you will need to add oil now.
  3. Find the oil fill location. It may have an oil can icon on it. 
  4. Quita la tapa y coloca el extremo angosto del embudo en la boca del depósito.
  5. Pour in roughly a quarter of the container.
  6. Wait a minute for the oil to drain into the pan.
  7. Repeat Step 2 until the dipstick shows oil at or just below the “MAX” mark.
    Important: Add oil in small amounts, and never add oil past the dipstick’s “MAX” level. Mucho aceite para el motor es casi tan malo como tener muy poco.
  8. Quita el embudo y vuelve a colocar la varilla de medición y la tapa. Asegúrate de que ambas estén en su lugar, luego cierra el capó.

Frecuencia de Cambio de Aceite

El aceite del motor debe cambiarse cada 5,000-10,000 millas, según el modelo del vehículo y las condiciones de manejo. Many newer Fords have an Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor System that can help you keep track of when an oil change is needed.

Entre los cambios, el nivel de aceite de tu vehículo puede bajar un poco, dentro lo normal. However, if it drops to the "MIN" mark or lower between oil changes, you should take the vehicle to your Concesionario Ford.
