Your Guide to 2017 Lincoln MKZ Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Lincoln MKZ, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine MKZ maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2017 Lincoln MKZ!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Lincoln themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your MKZ's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2017 Lincoln MKZ problems.

Overview of Essential Lincoln MKZ Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Lincoln MKZ for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 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). 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lincoln MKZ battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your MKZ stranded. Your Lincoln MKZ won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2017 Lincoln MKZ engine. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 MKZ, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2017 Lincoln MKZ? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln MKZ can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Lincoln MKZ suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. 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.

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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln MKZ? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2017 Lincoln MKZ maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Lincoln MKZ. Get answers to common Lincoln MKZ maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Lincoln MKZ? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Lincoln MKZ need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Lincoln MKZ? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Lincoln dashboard lights on? 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.
