2017 Lincoln MKT Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Lincoln MKT Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 2017 Lincoln MKT in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your MKT’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Lincoln, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your MKT’s engine running smoother, longer.

Lincoln MKT Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Lincoln MKT engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your MKT. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your MKT. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your MKT can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where Should I Go for My Lincoln MKT Tune-Up?

Schedule your next 2017 MKT engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Lincoln, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2017 Lincoln MKTs

  • When should Lincoln MKT spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my MKT? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Lincoln MKT. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Lincoln MKT engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
