Your Guide to 2018 Lincoln MKT Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Lincoln MKT to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your MKT has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get MKT maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Lincoln MKT!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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 MKT perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2018 Lincoln MKT problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln MKT Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Lincoln MKT for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your MKT. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2018 Lincoln MKT be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your MKT stranded. Your Lincoln MKT could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2018 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 2018 MKT. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln MKT's steering system with regular maintenance.

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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Lincoln MKT engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Lincoln MKT radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2018 Lincoln MKT maintenance.

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

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Lincoln MKT. Get answers to common Lincoln MKT maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Lincoln MKT? 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 use high mileage oil in my Lincoln MKT? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Lincoln MKT? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Lincoln dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Lincoln MKT to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
