Your Guide to 2013 Lincoln MKT Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Lincoln MKT to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your MKT could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get MKT maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Lincoln MKT!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your MKT running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Lincoln MKT problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln MKT Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Lincoln MKT for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2013 Lincoln MKT be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lincoln MKT battery. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty MKT) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln MKT could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2013 Lincoln MKT's engine run smoother. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 MKT in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 Lincoln MKT.

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln MKT suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Lincoln MKT's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Lincoln MKT maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. 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.
