1983 Lincoln Continental Oil Change

When to Change 1983 Lincoln Continental Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1983 Lincoln Continental? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 changing your 1983 Continental’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Continental may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lincoln if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lincoln Continental. 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 1983 Lincoln Continental?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1983 Lincoln Continental motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1983 Continental. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Continental's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Continental by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

1983 Lincoln Continental Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lincoln Continental motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Continental’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lincoln oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Continental exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
