2007 Ford Edge engine oil capacity

So, exactly how much engine oil does a 2007 Ford Edge require?
Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Ford Edge has an oil capacity of 5.5 quarts or 5.2 liters
That might seem a little confusing—is it 3.5 liters or 5.2? The 3.5 refers to the engine’s  displacement (or the volume its cylinders are comprised of), while the 5.2 is the oil capacity. Don’t get these two numbers mixed up or you’ll end up with less engine oil than you need!

What kind of oil does a 2007 Ford Edge need?

Considering that you now know how much engine oil your midsize SUV needs, let’s move on to the next big question: exactly what type of oil does a 2007 Ford Edge require?
Ford recommends that Edge drivers use an SAE 5W-20 engine oil with a “Certified For Gasoline Engines” trademark symbol from the American Petroleum Institute (API). Specifically, you should keep an eye out for
Motorcraft SAE 5W-20 Premium Synthetic Blend Motor Oil
that provides optimum fuel economy and performance power—as per your 2007 Ford Edge owner’s manual. In case you’re new to the wonderful world of engine oils, let’s break down what this oil grade means. 
SAE stands for Society of Automotive Engineers—the professional organization that codes oil viscosity. And the numbers refer to your engine oil’s viscosity or thickness, while the “W” simply stands for winter. The number 5 before the “W” shows that the oil has a lower viscosity, allowing your engine to perform well under cold weather conditions. Meanwhile, the number 20 after the “W” reveals the viscosity of the oil when the engine is at normal operating temperature. 

How often to change oil on a 2007 Ford Edge

Now that you know the correct oil capacity and type for your 2007 Ford Edge, what are you waiting for? It’s time to
change your oil
If you’re using conventional oil, Ford recommends that drivers change their oil every 3,000 to 5,000 milesor about every six months—to help reduce and remove any excess dirt that can build up in your engine. But if you’re sticking to the manufacturer’s recommendation and using synthetic oil for your Ford Edge, you can change your oil out every 7,500 to 10,000 miles
Seeing how these ranges vary widely, it’s always a good idea to check your engine oil level on a consistent basis—about once a month or so. Keep an eye out for the following dire warning signs that indicate that you need to change your engine oil:
  • Engine oil that goes from a clean light brown color to a dark brown or black color
  • Engine oil feels coarse or gritty 
  • Strange sounds coming from the engine 
  • New odors that smell like oil, smoke, or burning
  • Variations in your SUV’s performance

How to change your oil and oil filter

Is it about that time now? If you’ve determined that you need to change your engine oil, round up all your tools, including:
  • 5.5 quarts of SAE 5W-20 engine oil
  • Replacement filter
  • Socket wrench
  • Drain pan
  • Filter wrench
Once you have all your materials at hand, run your engine until it reaches normal operating temperature, which should take about five minutes. When you reach this point, turn the engine off and follow these step-by-step instructions:
  • Open your hood and detach the engine oil fill cap
  • Securely raise your car using ramps or jackstands
  • Carefully go under the car and unscrew the oil drain bolt and washer and proceed to drain the old engine oil into the drain pan 
  • Detach the old oil filter and continue to let the old oil drain into the drain pan
  • Install the new oil filter
  • Use a new washer to replace the oil drain bolt 
  • Add new motor oil to the engine and screw the engine oil fill cap back on
After you’ve completed these oil change instructions, turn your Ford Edge back on again and let it warm up for about 30 seconds to permit the new engine oil to fill the new filter. Use your engine oil dipstick to ensure you’ve used enough motor oil. If not, just top it off as needed. 
Allow your SUV to run for a couple more minutes and keep an eye out for any leaks. If you’ve performed this important maintenance service correctly, your
oil pressure light
should turn right off. And one more thing—don’t forget to clean up after yourself! Instead of putting your dirty motor oil in the garbage bin, take it to your local recycling center in a sealed container.
