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 the ins and outs of 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 2000 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2000 Lincoln Continental

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Continental? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Lincoln Continental engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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 changed professionally can not only reduce 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
