What to Know About 1985 Lincoln Continental Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Lincoln Continental to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Continental has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Continental maintenance. Just follow your 1985 Lincoln Continental maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Continental running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Lincoln Continental problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lincoln Continental

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Lincoln Continental and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Continental's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 Lincoln Continental? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lincoln Continental battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Lincoln Continental could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1985 Lincoln Continental's engine run smoother. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Continental in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Lincoln Continental? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln Continental can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Lincoln Continental suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln Continental's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Lincoln Continental maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Lincoln Continental’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Lincoln Continental radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.
