When to Change 2010 Mercury Mountaineer Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Mercury Mountaineer? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2010 Mountaineer’s oil should be changed according to Mercury’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Mountaineer may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercury recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercury Mountaineer. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2010 Mercury Mountaineer?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2010 Mercury Mountaineer motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Mercury has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2010 Mountaineer. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Mountaineer's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Mountaineer by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2010 Mercury Mountaineer Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mercury Mountaineer motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Mercury Mountaineer 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 Mountaineer oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercury exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
