Here’s Why 2000 Lincoln Continental Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Lincoln Continental, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Continental has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Continental maintenance. Just follow your 2000 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. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Continental perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2000 Lincoln Continental problems later.

Overview of Essential Lincoln Continental Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2000 Lincoln Continental for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2000 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Lincoln Continental could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2000 Lincoln Continental running newer, longer. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2000 Continental in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2000 Lincoln Continental.

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln Continental suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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 skip recommended Lincoln Continental services, 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Lincoln Continental engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Lincoln Continental radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2000 Lincoln Continental maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Questions About 2000 Lincoln Continental Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2000 Lincoln Continental. Get answers to common Lincoln Continental maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Lincoln Continental alignment checked? 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Lincoln? 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.
