Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1997 Lincoln Continentals

  • What happens if my Lincoln Continental spark plugs fail? 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? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Lincoln Continental. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Lincoln Continental engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
