Here’s Why 2016 Lincoln MKS Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Lincoln MKS and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your MKS. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine MKS maintenance. Just follow your 2016 Lincoln MKS maintenance schedule!

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; 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Lincoln MKS problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKS Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2016 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.

Could your 2016 Lincoln MKS 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lincoln MKS battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Lincoln MKS won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2016 Lincoln MKS engine. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 MKS, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Lincoln MKS.

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln MKS suspension and steering 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Lincoln MKS’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln MKS? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2016 Lincoln MKS maintenance and repairs.

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

Questions About 2016 Lincoln MKS Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 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? You know your Lincoln MKS better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Lincoln MKS? 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? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Lincoln MKS, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
