When to Change 2007 Lincoln MKZ Engine Oil

Need more info about 2007 Lincoln MKZ oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2007 MKZ’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your MKZ in the above table. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your MKZ may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lincoln MKZ. 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 Type of Oil Does My Lincoln MKZ Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lincoln MKZ. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2007 MKZ. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your MKZ's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2007 Lincoln MKZ Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Lincoln MKZ motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates 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 MKZ’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln oil on my own? 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln MKZ spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 worn cylinder walls.
