How Often to Get 2004 Lincoln LS Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2004 Lincoln LS? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 2004 LS’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lincoln if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 2004 Lincoln LS?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2004 Lincoln LS motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2004 Lincoln LS vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your LS's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and 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 LS by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Lincoln LS

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln LS engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Lincoln LS engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
