Your 1983 Mark VI’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Mark VI may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

1983 Lincoln Mark VI Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Mark VI? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Lincoln Mark VI engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln Mark VI 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Mark VI spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
