Your Guide to 1990 Lincoln Continental Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lincoln Continental, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Continental could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Continental, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1990 Lincoln Continental!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lincoln, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Continental's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1990 Lincoln Continental problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln Continental Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Lincoln Continental for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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 1990 Lincoln Continental be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Continental stranded. Your Lincoln Continental could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Lincoln Continental engine. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1990 Lincoln Continental? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln Continental suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Lincoln Continental's steering and suspension system.

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.

  • 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 does my Lincoln Continental need high mileage oil? If your Lincoln Continental has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Lincoln dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Lincoln Continental to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
