Interesting article in May 2017 Car Mechanics Magazine about Ford 1.0 litre ecoboost. They say that it is a very high performance engine for its size so the oil and filter should be changed every 6000 miles similarly service interval should be halved from 12500. Are any BMax Owners Club members sticking to this? Relatively expensive oil at £10 for a litre?
Ours is up for an oil & filter change. No manual available so is it difficult to get at?
Any help appreciated, Dave.
You don't say which engine you have.
However, for the Ecoboost, you'll need a pair of ramps to drive onto as the oil filter is high up to the rear of the engine.
Oil and filter change costs around £40-£45 and if you do it yourself, there's none of just sucking the old oil up the dipstick and leaving the sh***y stuff still in the sump!
In comparison to using a garage, a pair of ramps will pay for themselves in just one oil change.
