When to Change 1988 Lincoln Town Car Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1988 Lincoln Town Car? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Lincoln recommends changing your 1988 Town Car’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Town Car may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Lincoln Town Car. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Lincoln Town Car?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1988 Lincoln Town Car motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Lincoln has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1988 Town Car. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Town Car's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Town Car by taking into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

1988 Lincoln Town Car Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Lincoln Town Car motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Lincoln Town Car engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Lincoln oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Town Car spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
