How Often to Change 1995 Mercury Cougar Oil

Need more info about 1995 Mercury Cougar oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.”

Mercury recommends changing your 1995 Cougar’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Cougar in the above table. Your Cougar may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercury recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercury Cougar. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1995 Mercury Cougar Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercury Cougar engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mercury Cougar engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercury Cougar oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Mercury Cougar spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
