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 2006 Lincoln Zephyr’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Zephyr in the above table. Your Zephyr may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Lincoln Zephyr. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Lincoln Zephyr.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Zephyr by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Lincoln Zephyr

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Lincoln Zephyr? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Zephyr’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. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
