How Often to Get 2002 Lincoln Continental Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln Continental’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Lincoln recommends changing your 2002 Continental’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, 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.

2002 Lincoln Continental Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Continental engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Continental’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
