1996 Lincoln Continental Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Lincoln Continental Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1996 Lincoln Continental. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Continental’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Lincoln's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Continental’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Lincoln Continental

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 Lincoln Continental. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Continental can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 1996 Lincoln Continental Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Lincoln Continental spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Lincoln Continental? 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Lincoln Continental engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
