Your 2016 MKC’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your MKC may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lincoln if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln MKC. 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 2016 Lincoln MKC

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln MKC? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln MKC 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 MKC 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. 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 MKC exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
