Here’s Why 2018 Lincoln MKZ Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Lincoln MKZ and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your MKZ. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get MKZ maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2018 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 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, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2018 Lincoln MKZ problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lincoln MKZ

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Lincoln MKZ for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. 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.

Could your 2018 Lincoln MKZ be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Lincoln MKZ running newer, longer. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2018 Lincoln MKZ.

Routine upkeep for your Lincoln MKZ suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, 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. Components within your Lincoln MKZ's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Lincoln MKZ maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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.

2018 Lincoln MKZ Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Lincoln MKZ. Get answers to common Lincoln MKZ maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Lincoln MKZ alignment checked? 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 should I switch my Lincoln MKZ to high mileage oil? 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Lincoln? 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.
