Your Guide to 2010 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, your MKZ has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your MKZ, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2010 Lincoln MKZ maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lincoln, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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 prevent common 2010 Lincoln MKZ problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKZ Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2010 Lincoln MKZ for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your MKZ. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2010 Lincoln MKZ? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lincoln MKZ battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2010 Lincoln MKZ engine. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2010 MKZ, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2010 Lincoln MKZ.

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln MKZ suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Lincoln MKZ steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln MKZ's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Lincoln MKZ maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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. Need a new Lincoln MKZ radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2010 Lincoln MKZ maintenance.

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