What to Know About 2009 Lincoln MKS Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lincoln MKS, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your MKS could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get MKS maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2009 Lincoln MKS maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 MKS running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Lincoln MKS problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKS Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Lincoln MKS for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your MKS's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 Lincoln MKS. 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. 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 MKS battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty MKS) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln MKS won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2009 Lincoln MKS's engine run smoother. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 MKS in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2009 Lincoln MKS.

Maintaining your Lincoln MKS 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Lincoln MKS 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 MKS's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Lincoln MKS 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 MKS engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Lincoln MKS radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Lincoln MKS maintenance.

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

2009 Lincoln MKS Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Lincoln MKS. Get answers to common Lincoln MKS maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Lincoln MKS 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 MKS need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Lincoln MKS engines.
  •  Why are my Lincoln dashboard lights on? 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 MKS to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
