How Often to Get 1991 Mercury Sable Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mercury Sable’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1991 Sable’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Sable may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercury Sable. 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 1991 Mercury Sable?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Mercury Sable motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Mercury has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1991 Sable. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Sable’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

1991 Mercury Sable Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Mercury Sable engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Mercury Sable engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mercury oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercury Sable spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
