What is the maintenance schedule for the 1989 Lincoln Continental?

Here’s Why 1989 Lincoln Continental Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Lincoln Continental and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Continental. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Continental, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1989 Lincoln Continental maintenance schedule!

Lincoln knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Continental's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1989 Lincoln Continental problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lincoln Continental

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Lincoln Continental for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Continental. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1989 Lincoln Continental be ready for a new battery? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lincoln Continental battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Continental) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln Continental won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1989 Lincoln Continental's engine run smoother. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Lincoln Continental.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln Continental can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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.

If you skip recommended Lincoln Continental services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Is your Lincoln Continental radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Lincoln Continental. Get answers to common Lincoln Continental maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Lincoln Continental? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Lincoln Continental? 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.
  •  Why are my Lincoln dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lincoln Continental in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
