How Often to Get 2010 Lincoln MKS Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Lincoln MKS? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lincoln recommends changing your 2010 MKS’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your MKS may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lincoln MKS. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your MKS’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your MKS by considering your driving habits, local climate,

2010 Lincoln MKS Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKS engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln MKS engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lincoln MKS 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
