How Often to Get 2010 Mercury Mariner Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Mercury Mariner? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 2010 Mariner’s oil should be changed according to Mercury’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Mariner in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Mariner may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 Mercury if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercury Mariner. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Mercury Mariner Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2010 Mercury Mariner motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mercury has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2010 Mariner. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Mariner’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Mariner by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2010 Mercury Mariner Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercury Mariner? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Mercury Mariner engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercury Mariner oil at home? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercury Mariner spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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.
