Your Guide to 2008 Lincoln MKZ Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lincoln MKZ, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your MKZ 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 MKZ maintenance. Just follow your 2008 Lincoln MKZ maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lincoln, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your MKZ's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Lincoln MKZ problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln MKZ Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2008 Lincoln MKZ 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your MKZ’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2008 Lincoln MKZ 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. 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 MKZ battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your MKZ stranded. Your Lincoln MKZ won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2008 Lincoln MKZ engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 MKZ. 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 2008 Lincoln MKZ.

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln MKZ suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Lincoln MKZ steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Lincoln MKZ's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Lincoln MKZ services, 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lincoln MKZ cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln MKZ? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2008 Lincoln MKZ maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
