When to Change 2001 Lincoln LS Engine Oil

Need more info about 2001 Lincoln LS oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 2001 LS’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your LS may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln LS. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

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

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lincoln LS. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2001 Lincoln LS vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your LS's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your LS by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2001 Lincoln LS Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lincoln LS motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Lincoln LS engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln LS oil at home? 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln LS 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
