When it comes to your Lincoln MKT, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance.

There's no need to guess when it's time to get MKT maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2011 Lincoln MKT maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your MKT running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2011 Lincoln MKT problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKT Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2011 Lincoln MKT and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your MKT's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2011 Lincoln MKT 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). 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lincoln MKT battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your MKT stranded. Your Lincoln MKT won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2011 Lincoln MKT's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 MKT. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2011 Lincoln MKT? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Lincoln MKT steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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 MKT 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln MKT's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Lincoln MKT services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 MKT’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
