Need more info about 2008 Lincoln Navigator oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Your 2008 Navigator’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Navigator in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Navigator may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lincoln if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, 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 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Lincoln Navigator Need?

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 most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2008 Navigator. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Navigator’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Navigator by considering your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2008 Lincoln Navigator

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Navigator engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Lincoln Navigator engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln Navigator 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. 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 Navigator exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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.
