Getting your 1986 Continental’s brakes checked before trouble starts is a good idea. There's no need to wait for a problem. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your Lincoln, like a tire repair or an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, a vibrating pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Lincoln Continental like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. In general, manufacturers like Lincoln advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are disassembled and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That also includes checking the e-brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our technicians will inspect your 1986 Lincoln Continental brakes, brake fluid level, and more! Preventative brake care can help keep you safe on the road.
How often should you change your 1986 Lincoln Continental’s brake pads? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your Continental. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Lincoln Continentals that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed Lincoln's standards.
Your Lincoln Continental may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. Don't wait if you're experiencing brake squeaks or a loss of braking power. Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help you steer clear of further brake damage. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1986 Lincoln Continental brake repairs. We offer a variety of brake services like pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
