Your 1989 Continental’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

1989 Lincoln Continental Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Continental engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Lincoln Continental engine failure. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
