Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your Mark VII may need an oil change 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. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lincoln Mark VII. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Lincoln Mark VII

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Mark VII engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Mark VII’s 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 VII 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. 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 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
