Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations.

Overview of Essential Lincoln Continental Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2002 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. 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.

Could your 2002 Lincoln Continental be ready for a new battery? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lincoln Continental battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 2002 Lincoln Continental running newer, longer. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2002 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2002 Lincoln Continental.

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln Continental suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Lincoln Continental steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln Continental's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Lincoln Continental maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Lincoln Continental’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
