2008 Ford Crown Victoria Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Ford Crown Victoria engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford Crown Victoria engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
