When to Change 1984 Lincoln Continental Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln Continental’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 1984 Lincoln Continental’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Continental in the above table. Your Continental may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lincoln Continental. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1984 Lincoln Continental Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Continental engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Lincoln Continental 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 Continental 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
