Here’s Why 2011 Lincoln MKS Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Lincoln MKS to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your MKS has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2011 Lincoln MKS!

Lincoln knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Lincoln MKS problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln MKS Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Lincoln MKS for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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.

Could your 2011 Lincoln MKS be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your MKS may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. 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 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 help your 2011 Lincoln MKS's engine run smoother. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2011 MKS, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 Lincoln MKS.

Maintaining your Lincoln MKS steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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.

Without routine Lincoln MKS maintenance, 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lincoln MKS cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln MKS? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2011 Lincoln MKS maintenance and repairs.
