What to Know About 1999 Lincoln Continental Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lincoln Continental, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Continental has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Continental maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1999 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Continental's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1999 Lincoln Continental problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln Continental Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Lincoln Continental for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Continental’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1999 Lincoln Continental. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Continental may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Continental stranded. Your Lincoln Continental won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1999 Lincoln Continental running newer, longer. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 Continental, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1999 Lincoln Continental.

Maintaining your Lincoln Continental steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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.

If you fall behind on routine Lincoln Continental maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lincoln Continental cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Lincoln Continental radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1999 Lincoln Continental maintenance.
