Ford Ranger EV on Eay #300163083932 Says motor recently changed, I have
heard this motor does have oil in it for the bearings, does it need to
be changed often?

If a motor has a flip up oil caps, you just keep adding oil so it does not
go below the required level. You do not change this oil, unless you change
the bearings. I have change these type of oil type bearings with a
permanent high temperature motor bearings.

You can also get a automatic motor oilier device that you can get from some
motor shops.

From the manual:

"Replace transaxle fluid every 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes
first."

"The transaxle is lubricated by Tribolube-L6 (Pro Gear 21), a
synthetic, low-viscosity oil."
