Lincoln recommends having your 2011 Lincoln MKT’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your MKT may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln MKT. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2011 Lincoln MKT Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKT engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Lincoln MKT engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln MKT oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
