When to Change 2009 Lincoln MKZ Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Lincoln MKZ? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 having your 2009 Lincoln MKZ’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your MKZ may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Lincoln MKZ?

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 best oil for 2009 Lincoln MKZ vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your MKZ's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your MKZ by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2009 Lincoln MKZ Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKZ engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Lincoln MKZ engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lincoln MKZ oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
