Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2005 Lincoln LS!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lincoln, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your LS running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2005 Lincoln LS problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Lincoln LS Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2005 Lincoln LS to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 LS’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2005 Lincoln LS be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. 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 LS stranded. Your Lincoln LS won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2005 Lincoln LS running newer, longer. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2005 LS in the chart at the top 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2005 Lincoln LS.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln LS can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Lincoln LS steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln LS's steering system with 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. 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 LS engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Lincoln LS radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2005 Lincoln LS maintenance.

  • 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 does my Lincoln LS need high mileage oil? 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Lincoln? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Lincoln LS, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
