How Often to Get 1999 Lincoln Continental Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Lincoln Continental? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 1999 Continental’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Continental in the above table. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your Continental may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, 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.

1999 Lincoln Continental Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Continental? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, 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 Continental oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Continental 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 damaged cylinder walls.
