2018 Lincoln MKX Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Lincoln MKX

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2018 Lincoln MKX in tip-top shape. 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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Lincoln, you can rest assured you’re investing in your MKX’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Lincoln MKX

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Lincoln MKX engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and 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. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your MKX's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your MKX's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2018 Lincoln MKX Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Lincoln MKX to drive with old spark plugs? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my MKX? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Lincoln MKX. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Lincoln MKX engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
