When to Change 2017 Lincoln MKX Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Lincoln MKX? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2017 MKX’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your MKX 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 go long distances at low speeds. 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Lincoln MKX?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lincoln MKX. Lincoln has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2017 MKX. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your MKX’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your MKX by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Lincoln MKX Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lincoln MKX motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess 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? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
