No matter the mileage, your MKT may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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 Type of Oil Does My Lincoln MKT Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Lincoln MKT motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2019 Lincoln MKT vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your MKT's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important 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 the number of miles on your odometer.

2019 Lincoln MKT Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln MKT? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine 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.
  • 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
