How Often to Change 2011 Lincoln Navigator Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2011 Lincoln Navigator? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2011 Navigator’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your Navigator may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. 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 Type of Oil Does My Lincoln Navigator Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2011 Lincoln Navigator motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2011 Navigator.

In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Navigator’s oil, replace and recycle the old 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 rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Navigator by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2011 Lincoln Navigator Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Lincoln Navigator motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Lincoln Navigator engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln Navigator oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Navigator exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
