How Often to Get 2007 Lincoln MKX Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2007 Lincoln MKX? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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 changing your 2007 MKX’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your MKX may need an oil change if your check engine 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln MKX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2007 Lincoln MKX Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKX engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Lincoln MKX engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln MKX oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 damaged cylinder walls.
