Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Lincoln Navigator

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Navigator? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln Navigator oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln exhaust smoke gray 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
