Need more info about 2006 Mercury Monterey oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2006 Monterey’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Monterey may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercury Monterey. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2006 Mercury Monterey Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercury Monterey engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercury Monterey engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercury Monterey oil at home? 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercury Monterey exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
