Here’s Why 2009 Lincoln MKX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Lincoln MKX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your MKX has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your MKX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2009 Lincoln MKX!

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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your MKX running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2009 Lincoln MKX problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Lincoln MKX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 MKX. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 Lincoln MKX. 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. 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 MKX 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 MKX stranded. Your Lincoln MKX 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Lincoln MKX running newer, longer. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2009 MKX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2009 Lincoln MKX.

Maintaining your Lincoln MKX steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Lincoln MKX 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 MKX's steering system with regular maintenance.

  • When should I have Lincoln MKX alignment checked? You know your Lincoln MKX better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I switch my Lincoln MKX to high mileage oil? If your Lincoln MKX has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Lincoln? 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 MKX to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
