Oil changes on modern Ford cards are recommended approximately every 10,000 miles and topping up of oil should be done regularly.
In addition to the light, there are some clues that the oil in your car might need replaced. Your car making a strange noise or shuddering motion upon starting the ignition may indicate that the engine is not being sufficiently lubricated by oil.
