When to Change 2013 Lincoln MKT Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2013 Lincoln MKT? Get the advice you need at 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 having your 2013 Lincoln MKT’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your MKT may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Lincoln MKT motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2013 MKT. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your MKT's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other 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 preferences, and mileage.

2013 Lincoln MKT Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKT engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 old cylinder walls.
