Your Guide to 2016 Lincoln MKX Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Lincoln MKX and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your MKX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine MKX maintenance. Just follow your 2016 Lincoln MKX maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your MKX perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Lincoln MKX problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 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.

Could your 2016 Lincoln MKX be ready for a new battery? 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. 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, 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2016 Lincoln MKX's engine run smoother. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 Lincoln MKX.

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Lincoln MKX's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Lincoln MKX services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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.

  • 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 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 Lincoln dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Lincoln MKX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
