When to Change 2018 Lincoln MKC Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln MKC’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2018 MKC’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 notice excess 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lincoln MKC. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Lincoln MKC Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2018 Lincoln MKC motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2018 Lincoln MKC vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your MKC’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your MKC by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2018 Lincoln MKC Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKC engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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.
  • Can I change my Lincoln MKC oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 MKC spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
