Overview of Essential Lincoln Mark VII Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII 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 Mark VII’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Mark VII 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Mark VII) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln Mark VII won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Lincoln Mark VII running newer, longer. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1986 Mark VII 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. 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 1986 Lincoln Mark VII.

Maintaining your Lincoln Mark VII steering and suspension 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Lincoln Mark VII suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Lincoln Mark VII's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Lincoln Mark VII maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lincoln Mark VII cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln Mark VII? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it.
