2008 Lincoln MKZ Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Lincoln MKZ Performance with a Tune-Up

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, especially if you want your 2008 Lincoln MKZ’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your MKZ. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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 invest in your MKZ's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Lincoln MKZ

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Lincoln MKZ engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your MKZ. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your MKZ. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your MKZ: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2008 Lincoln MKZ Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Lincoln MKZ 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Lincoln MKZ? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Lincoln MKZ. 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 MKZ engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
