What to Know About 2014 Lincoln MKX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Lincoln MKX to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine MKX maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2014 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your MKX's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2014 Lincoln MKX problems later.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKX Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 Lincoln MKX and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2014 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your MKX stranded. Your Lincoln MKX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2014 Lincoln MKX's engine run smoother. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2014 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2014 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.

  • What should I do after hitting 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lincoln MKX in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
