How Often to Change 2010 Lincoln MKT Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln MKT’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 having your 2010 Lincoln MKT’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your MKT may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln MKT. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Lincoln MKT Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2010 Lincoln MKT motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Lincoln has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2010 Lincoln MKT vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your MKT's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your MKT by considering your driving style, and odometer.

Types of Motor Oil for Lincolns

Wondering if we carry the right motor oil for your Lincoln? We carry the best because your MKT deserves the best. Check your owner's manual and talk with a technician to select the right Lincoln MKT oil, whether it's Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, or Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. There's a reason we carry these motor oil brands. They are proven winners.

Unlike traditional synthetic motor oils, the Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic line of motor oils with PurePlus® Technology is formulated from pure natural gas, which helps lead to better performance. But don't forget about Shell Rotella for heavy-duty engines. It's specifically designed for diesel and gasoline engines that need to overcome the strenuous working conditions, and is fortified to deliver heightened performance in extreme temperatures, increased wear protection, and better oxidation resistance.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Lincoln MKT

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKT engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln MKT engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln MKT oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln MKT spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
