How Often to Change 2012 Lincoln Navigator Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln Navigator’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2012 Navigator’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Lincoln recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Navigator by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2012 Lincoln Navigator

  • Should I check my Lincoln Navigator motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Navigator spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
