How Often to Change 2005 Mercury Montego Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2005 Mercury Montego? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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.

Mercury recommends changing your 2005 Montego’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Montego may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercury Montego. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2005 Mercury Montego Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercury Montego motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercury Montego engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercury oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
