When to Change 1990 Mercury Colony Park Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mercury Colony Park’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Mercury recommends having your 1990 Mercury Colony Park’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Colony Park may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 Mercury if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercury Colony Park. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1990 Mercury Colony Park motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Colony Park’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle.

1990 Mercury Colony Park Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercury Colony Park engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mercury Colony Park engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mercury oil on my own? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercury Colony Park 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
