How Often to Get 2002 Lincoln Blackwood Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln Blackwood’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lincoln recommends having your 2002 Lincoln Blackwood’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Blackwood may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lincoln if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln Blackwood. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2002 Lincoln Blackwood?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2002 Lincoln Blackwood motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2002 Blackwood. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Blackwood’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Blackwood by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2002 Lincoln Blackwood

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Blackwood engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Lincoln Blackwood engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln Blackwood oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Blackwood 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
