Lincoln recommends changing your 2016 MKX’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your MKX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln MKX. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Lincoln MKX

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln MKX? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Lincoln MKX engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln MKX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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 old cylinder walls.
