When to Change 2005 Lincoln LS Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln LS’s oil changed? Turn to 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 2005 Lincoln LS’s motor oil changed 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 notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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 Type of Oil Does My Lincoln LS Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2005 Lincoln LS motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2005 Lincoln LS vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your LS's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your LS by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2005 Lincoln LS

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln LS? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. 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.
  • Can I change my Lincoln LS 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. 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 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
