Here’s Why 2013 Lincoln MKX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Lincoln MKX to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your MKX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 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. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 MKX perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2013 Lincoln MKX problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKX Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Lincoln MKX and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your MKX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2013 Lincoln MKX be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty MKX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln MKX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2013 Lincoln MKX's engine run smoother. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 MKX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Lincoln MKX.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln MKX can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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.

If you fall behind on routine Lincoln MKX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 your Lincoln MKX radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Lincoln MKX maintenance.

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

2013 Lincoln MKX Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Lincoln MKX. Get answers to common Lincoln MKX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Lincoln MKX? 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 MKX? 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!
  •  Why are my Lincoln dashboard lights on? 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.
