How Often to Change 1992 Mercury Cougar Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1992 Mercury Cougar? Get the advice you need at 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 1992 Cougar’s oil should be changed according to Mercury’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mercury-recommended oil change intervals, your Cougar may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercury recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercury Cougar. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1992 Mercury Cougar Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercury Cougar engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Cougar’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercury oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Mercury exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
