What to Know About 1987 Lincoln Continental Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lincoln Continental, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance.

It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Lincoln Continental!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Continental perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 Lincoln Continental problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln Continental Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1987 Lincoln Continental to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Lincoln Continental. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Continental may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lincoln Continental battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Continental) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln Continental could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1987 Lincoln Continental's engine run smoother. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 Continental, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Lincoln Continental.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Lincoln Continental? You know your Lincoln Continental better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Lincoln Continental to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Lincoln Continental engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Lincoln? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Lincoln Continental, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
