How Often to Change 1996 Lincoln Town Car 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! Our expertise goes beyond 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 1996 Town Car’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Town Car may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Lincoln if you regularly 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Lincoln has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1996 Town Car.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1996 Lincoln Town Car

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Town Car? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Town Car’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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 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 Town Car spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
