When to Change 2013 Lincoln MKZ Engine Oil

Need more info about 2013 Lincoln MKZ oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 having your 2013 Lincoln MKZ’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your MKZ in the above table. No matter the mileage, your MKZ may need its oil changed ASAP 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln MKZ. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 Lincoln MKZ?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Lincoln MKZ motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2013 MKZ. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your MKZ's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your MKZ by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2013 Lincoln MKZ Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln MKZ? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your MKZ’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln MKZ oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln MKZ spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
