Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Ford Crown Victoria

  • Should I check my Ford Crown Victoria motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ford Crown Victoria engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford Crown Victoria oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Crown Victoria exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
