How Often to Get 2018 Lincoln MKT Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Lincoln MKT? 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. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lincoln recommends having your 2018 Lincoln MKT’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your MKT in the above table. Your MKT may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lincoln MKT. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2018 Lincoln MKT?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2018 Lincoln MKT motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Lincoln has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2018 Lincoln MKT vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your MKT's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your MKT by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2018 Lincoln MKT Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln MKT? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln MKT engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my 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 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 MKT exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
