How Often to Change 2002 Lincoln Navigator Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2002 Lincoln Navigator? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2002 Lincoln Navigator’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Lincoln Navigator. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Lincoln Navigator?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lincoln Navigator. Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2002 Navigator. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Navigator’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Navigator by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

Types of Motor Oil for Lincolns

Wondering if we carry the right motor oil for your Lincoln? We carry the best because your Navigator deserves the best. Talk with a teammate and consult your owner's manual before picking a motor oil. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, you can choose from the following oils: Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, and Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. There are plenty of motor oils on the market today, so why do we prefer these brands? They are proven winners. For example, when tested on taxi fleets from coast to coast, Quaker State was shown to provide double the protection when compared to the industry standard. [1] And Pennzoil? Pennzoil Synthetics are the most technologically advanced, fully formulated motor oils available and exceed current industry and manufacturer requirements. Then there's Shell Rotella heavy-duty engine oil. It's expressly designed for gasoline and diesel engines that need to overcome the strenuous working conditions, and is fortified to deliver increased wear protection, heightened performance in extreme temperatures, and improved oxidation resistance.

2002 Lincoln Navigator Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Navigator? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, 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. 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 Navigator spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
