What to Know About 2010 Lincoln MKX Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lincoln MKX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your MKX. 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 MKX maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2010 Lincoln MKX maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your MKX's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2010 Lincoln MKX problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKX Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2010 Lincoln MKX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 MKX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2010 Lincoln MKX. 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 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 prevent premature wear on your 2010 Lincoln MKX engine. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 MKX in the chart at the top of this page. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2010 Lincoln MKX.

Maintaining your Lincoln MKX 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. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Lincoln MKX steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Lincoln MKX's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Lincoln MKX maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lincoln MKX cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln MKX? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2010 Lincoln MKX maintenance.
