Your Guide to 2010 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. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2010 Lincoln MKS maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lincoln, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your MKS perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2010 Lincoln MKS problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKS Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2010 Lincoln MKS to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with 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 MKS’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lincoln MKS 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 MKS) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln MKS 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2010 Lincoln MKS running newer, longer. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 MKS in the chart at the top of this page. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2010 Lincoln MKS.

Maintaining your Lincoln MKS 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Lincoln MKS 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. 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.

Without routine Lincoln MKS 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!). 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’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2010 Lincoln MKS maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
