How Often to Change 2014 Lincoln MKZ Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln MKZ’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 changing your 2014 MKZ’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Lincoln MKZ

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKZ engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Lincoln MKZ 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 oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
