How Often to Change 1998 Lincoln Navigator Oil

Need more info about 1998 Lincoln Navigator oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 changing your 1998 Navigator’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Navigator may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lincoln Navigator. 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.

1998 Lincoln Navigator Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Navigator? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln Navigator engine failure. 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Navigator exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
