Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Lincoln Mark VII

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Mark VII? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Mark VII’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce 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 Mark VII spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
