Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1987 Lincoln Continental

Tune Into Your Lincoln Continental

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 1987 Lincoln Continental’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Continental’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Lincoln, you invest in your Continental's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Lincoln Continental

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Lincoln Continental engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Continental. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Continental's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Continental's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

1987 Lincoln Continental Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Lincoln Continental to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Lincoln’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Lincoln Continental mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Lincoln Continental engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
