Lincoln recommends having your 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your Mark VIII may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lincoln Mark VIII. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Mark VIII? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Lincoln Mark VIII 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 VIII oil at home? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Mark VIII spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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.
