When to Change 1998 Lincoln Continental Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1998 Lincoln Continental? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1998 Continental’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Continental by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1998 Lincoln Continental Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Lincoln Continental motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Continental’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
