What to Know About 2009 Lincoln MKZ Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Lincoln MKZ to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your MKZ. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Lincoln MKZ!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 MKZ running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2009 Lincoln MKZ problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKZ Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2009 Lincoln MKZ to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your MKZ's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 Lincoln MKZ. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Lincoln MKZ won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Lincoln MKZ running newer, longer. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 MKZ 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2009 Lincoln MKZ.

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln MKZ suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Lincoln MKZ's steering and suspension system.
