When to Change 2001 Lincoln Navigator Engine Oil

Need more info about 2001 Lincoln Navigator oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Lincoln recommends changing your 2001 Navigator’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Navigator in the above table. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your Navigator 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2001 Lincoln Navigator motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2001 Lincoln Navigator Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Navigator 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 cause your Navigator’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Lincoln oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
