How Often to Change 2015 Lincoln MKT Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2015 Lincoln MKT? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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.

Lincoln recommends having your 2015 Lincoln MKT’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your MKT in the above table. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your MKT may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2015 Lincoln MKT?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lincoln MKT. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2015 MKT. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your MKT’s oil, replace and recycle the old 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 the number of miles on your odometer.

2015 Lincoln MKT Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln MKT? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln MKT engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln MKT oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
