Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2012 Lincoln MKX

Enhance Lincoln MKX Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2012 Lincoln MKX. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your MKX’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Lincoln's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your MKX’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Lincoln MKX

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2012 Lincoln MKX. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your MKX. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 MKX. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your MKX's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where to Get a Lincoln MKX Tune-Up

Schedule your next 2012 MKX 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: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2012 Lincoln MKXs

  • When should Lincoln MKX spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Lincoln MKX? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my MKX engine? 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.
