When to Change 2001 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! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2001 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. No matter the mileage, your Continental may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lincoln Continental. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2001 Lincoln Continental?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2001 Lincoln Continental motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2001 Lincoln Continental vehicles.

During your oil change service, a technician will change your Continental's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Continental by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2001 Lincoln Continental Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lincoln Continental motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln Continental engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
