2003 Ford Crown Victoria Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Crown Victoria engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Ford Crown Victoria engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ford Crown Victoria oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford Crown Victoria exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
