1993 Lincoln Mark VIII Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Mark VIII engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Lincoln Mark VIII 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 VIII 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln exhaust smoke gray 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
