Smart Oil Servicing

The smart system that measures your vehicle’s oil health.
The Intelligent Oil Life Monitor (IOLM) is a software designed, algorithm-driven system which uses actual engine data and vehicle operating conditions, plus driving habits, to calculate precisely when you need an oil change.

How does it work?

IOLM personalises your Ford vehicle’s oil change cycles by using your driving habits, to help keep your vehicle performing efficiently, year after year. IOLM uses engine data and your vehicle’s operating conditions to estimate when it needs an oil change. These include towing, off-road driving, extended idling, or low speed intervals. The less stress you place on your vehicle, the longer the time between oil replacement services, which could save you money on vehicle maintenance costs.

What do I look out for?

The first IOLM servicing alert – ‘Change Engine Oil Soon’ – comes on when your oil is at 5% health. You should book an oil service as soon as you can. The second IOLM alert – ‘Oil Change Required’ – warns you that your oil is at 0% health. You should book an oil service immediately. These alerts appear on both your instrument cluster display and your FordPass app. At the point of the last alert being displayed, you will have 800km or 2 weeks (whichever occurs first) from the final alert to do the oil service before your vehicle’s warranty may be impacted. Please contact Nelspruit Ford to book an oil service. We may discuss with you if an annual vehicle service is also required, depending on the next vehicle service due date. Once we replaces the Oil & Oil Filter, we’ll reset your IOLM.

How do I manage my vehicle’s engine oil?

An oil service is required when the oil change alert appears in the information cluster display. Please refer to your Owner’s Manual or Service Portfolio in your vehicle for all your vehicle’s scheduled servicing requirements or contact your Nelspruit Ford for more information.
