Choosing the Right Oil

Selecting the appropriate kind of oil that meets your 2023 Ford Transit 150 oil capacity and type is imperative for peak engine performance and longevity. Ford recommends using high-quality motor oil that meets the specifications outlined in the owner's manual.

Typically, the Transit 150 uses synthetic blend or full synthetic oil, which provides better protection against engine wear and maintains viscosity in varying temperatures.

Before purchasing oil for your Transit 150, make sure it meets the specifications outlined by Ford to prevent any potential issues and maintain warranty coverage. Also, think about things like viscosity grade and additives to provide compatibility with your vehicle's engine and driving conditions.

Oil Change Procedure

While some owners prefer to have their oil changed at a professional service center, others may want to perform the task themselves. If you choose to change the oil in your 2023 Ford Transit 150 at home, follow proper procedures to avoid damaging the engine or compromising performance.

Begin by gathering the necessary tools and materials, including a wrench or socket set, oil filter wrench, oil drain pan, funnel, and the appropriate type and quantity of motor oil.

Refer to your owner's manual for specific instructions on locating the oil drain plug and oil filter on your Transit 150.

Once you've located the drain plug and filter, carefully remove them and allow the old oil to drain completely into the oil drain pan. After draining, replace the oil filter with a new one, making sure it's properly seated and tightened according to the manufacturer's specifications.

Next, reinstall the drain plug and fill the engine with the recommended amount of fresh oil using a funnel to prevent spills.

Finally, turn on the engine. To circulate the new oil throughout the system, allow it to run for a short while. Around the drain plug and filter, check for any leaks and top off the oil level if necessary. Throw the old oil and filter away responsibly, following local regulations for recycling or disposal.
