How Often to Get 2017 Lincoln MKZ Oil Changes

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. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Lincoln recommends having your 2017 Lincoln MKZ’s motor oil changed 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Lincoln MKZ

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln MKZ engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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 MKZ oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln MKZ exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
