2013 Lincoln MKZ Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Lincoln MKZ Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 2013 Lincoln MKZ. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your MKZ’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Lincoln, you can rest assured you’re investing in your MKZ’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Lincoln MKZ

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Lincoln MKZ engine tune-up services. One option 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your MKZ. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your MKZ's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2013 Lincoln MKZs

  • 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. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Lincoln’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Lincoln MKZ? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • 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.
