What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2013 Lincoln MKS?

Here’s Why 2013 Lincoln MKS Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Lincoln MKS and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper 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? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine MKS maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Lincoln MKS!

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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your MKS's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Lincoln MKS problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lincoln MKS

Bring your 2013 Lincoln MKS to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 MKS’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2013 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lincoln MKS battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 Lincoln MKS running newer, longer. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 MKS 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Lincoln MKS? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln MKS 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Lincoln MKS steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln MKS's steering system with regular maintenance.

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. 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 your Lincoln MKS radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Lincoln MKS maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Lincoln MKS? 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 should I switch my Lincoln MKS to high mileage oil? If your Lincoln MKS 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lincoln MKS in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
