Your Guide to 2017 Lincoln MKX Scheduled Maintenance

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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. 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 2017 Lincoln MKX!

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, 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your MKX running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Lincoln MKX problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKX Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2017 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. 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 2017 Lincoln MKX be ready for a new battery? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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, 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Lincoln MKX running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 MKX. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2017 Lincoln MKX.

Maintaining your Lincoln MKX steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Lincoln MKX suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. 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 fall behind on routine Lincoln MKX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Lincoln MKX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln MKX? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2017 Lincoln MKX maintenance.

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

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Lincoln MKX. Get answers to common Lincoln MKX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Lincoln MKX alignment checked? 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 does my Lincoln MKX need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Lincoln MKX? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • 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
