Your Guide to 2011 Lincoln MKZ Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Lincoln MKZ to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your MKZ has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your MKZ, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2011 Lincoln MKZ!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your MKZ perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2011 Lincoln MKZ problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln MKZ Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Lincoln MKZ for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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 2011 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty MKZ) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln MKZ won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2011 Lincoln MKZ's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 MKZ. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2011 Lincoln MKZ.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln MKZ can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. 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.

If you fall behind on routine Lincoln MKZ maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Lincoln MKZ engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Lincoln MKZ radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2011 Lincoln MKZ maintenance and repairs.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Lincoln MKZ? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2011 MKZ is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Lincoln MKZ? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Lincoln MKZ engines.
  • Can Lincoln dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Lincoln MKZ to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
