1983 Lincoln Continental Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Lincoln Continental

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1983 Lincoln Continental. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Continental’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Lincoln's recommendations, you invest in your Continental's long-term health and engine performance.

Lincoln Continental Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1983 Lincoln Continental. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Continental. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Continental’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Continental: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1983 Lincoln Continentals

  • Will it hurt my Lincoln Continental to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Lincoln Continental? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Lincoln Continental engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
