2018 Lincoln MKZ Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Lincoln MKZ

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 2018 Lincoln MKZ’s engine to last for a long time. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Lincoln for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your MKZ's long-term health and engine performance.

Lincoln MKZ Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Lincoln MKZ engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your MKZ. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your MKZ’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system 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.

Where to Get a Lincoln MKZ Tune-Up

If you’re looking for 2018 MKZ engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Lincoln, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2018 Lincoln MKZs

  • When should Lincoln MKZ spark plugs be replaced? 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? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Lincoln MKZ. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my MKZ engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
