How Often to Change 2001 Lincoln Town Car Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Lincoln Town Car’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2001 Town Car’s oil should be changed according to Lincoln’s recommended oil change 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

2001 Lincoln Town Car Oil Change Questions

  • 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 reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Town Car’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Lincoln Town Car oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Lincoln Town Car exhaust smoke grayish 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
