1985 Lincoln Town Car Oil Change

When to Change 1985 Lincoln Town Car Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln Town Car’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at 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.”

Lincoln recommends having your 1985 Lincoln Town Car’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Lincoln-recommended oil change intervals, your Town Car 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 an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lincoln if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lincoln Town Car. 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 Town Car Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lincoln Town Car. Lincoln has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1985 Town Car. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Town Car’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

1985 Lincoln Town Car Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Lincoln Town Car engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Lincoln Town Car engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln Town Car 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
