Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lincoln LS

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2002 Lincoln LS for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your LS. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2002 Lincoln LS. 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lincoln LS battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty LS) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln LS could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2002 Lincoln LS engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2002 LS. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2002 Lincoln LS? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Lincoln LS steering and suspension 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 LS steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Lincoln LS's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Lincoln LS maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. 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 LS’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Lincoln LS radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2002 Lincoln LS maintenance.

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

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Lincoln LS? You know your Lincoln LS better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Lincoln LS? If your Lincoln LS 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!
  •  Why are my Lincoln dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lincoln LS in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
