2020 Lincoln MKZ Maintenance Schedule

Maintenance for Your 2020 Lincoln MKZ

How often should I service my 2020 Lincoln MKZ?

Here’s Why 2020 Lincoln MKZ Scheduled Maintenance Matters

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. 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 2020 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 maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Lincoln MKZ problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln MKZ Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2020 Lincoln MKZ and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 2020 Lincoln MKZ be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Lincoln MKZ battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Lincoln MKZ could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2020 Lincoln MKZ engine. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2020 MKZ in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 Lincoln MKZ? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Lincoln MKZ steering and suspension 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, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln MKZ's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Lincoln MKZ maintenance, 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 it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln MKZ? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2020 Lincoln MKZ maintenance.

2020 Lincoln MKZ Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2020 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 does my Lincoln MKZ need high mileage oil? If your Lincoln MKZ has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Lincoln dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lincoln MKZ in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
