Quite the opposite....you more than likely will get only about 5k to an oil change in spite of the manual saying 10k (this is due to the fact that when you're on battery the engine doesn't get warm enough to evaporate the moisture out of the crankcase). ...
Love your recommendations, as that’s what I try to do.I almost always use eco mode, it changes the CVT transmission's operation and allows one pedal driving. With the CVT it obviously doesn't "shift" per-say but it feels fairly normal coming from a gas escape. You can drive it like a normal car or you can use the eco coach screen and see how long you can keep it in electric mode. When I got my car all of the tires were aired to 30 PSI but I aired each tire up to 40 PSI to further improve efficiency.
Nice to have gotten 15.8k according to the oil life monitor, however never tell your dealer that if you have an engine issue.Quite the opposite.
- water in the oil is not a problem
- your Escape will only count ICE miles toward the oil change. I got 15.6K on the most recent one.
I submit the oil data for my C-Max as proof of the first assertion. Water came and went for the reason you cite, but the car was fine. Note the last change was a 2-year interval, sampled twice.
It's clear you did not research this post. EVERY WORD IS FALSE! I can only suggest you RTFM before replying again.Nice to have gotten 15.8k according to the oil life monitor, however never tell your dealer that if you have an engine issue.
You failed to follow the maximum oil change interval of 10k so they have grounds to void the engine warranty (if any), this applies to third party warranties as well as Ford.
Literally..."Failure to perform scheduled maintenance as specified in the Owner’s Manual will invalidate warranty"
Yep, thanks!If you're referring to the downhill function its really not needed unless you doing extended mountain driving where you're on a constant steep downhill slope.
I read this exactly as it is written,I found this footnote in the owners manual that may help settle this disagreement (I've bolded the relevant text from page 492:
Normal Driving schedule
Maximum 16,000KM / 10,000 miles
1 Hybrid vehicles may achieve longer distances between oil changes, but do not exceedthe 1 year max oil change interval. Remaining oil life can be accessed through theinformation display. See Information Displays (page 111)
As I read this, it's clear that Ford is saying that one year, 16,000km / 10,000 miles is the max regardless of whatever the OLM says.
