Oil Change Q&A for Your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Mark VII? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln Mark VII engine failure. 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 VII oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Mark VII exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
