How Often to Get 2002 Lincoln LS Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln LS’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 2002 Lincoln LS’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your LS may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lincoln LS. 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 2002 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 most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2002 LS. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2002 Lincoln LS

  • Should I check my Lincoln LS motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. 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’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lincoln LS oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln LS 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
