Your Guide to 2004 Lincoln Navigator Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Lincoln Navigator to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Navigator could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Navigator, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2004 Lincoln Navigator maintenance schedule!

Lincoln knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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 Navigator's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2004 Lincoln Navigator problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln Navigator Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2004 Lincoln Navigator to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Navigator's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2004 Lincoln Navigator be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. 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 Navigator battery. 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 Navigator won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2004 Lincoln Navigator engine. See Lincoln's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2004 Navigator in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2004 Lincoln Navigator? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln Navigator can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Lincoln Navigator steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Lincoln Navigator's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Lincoln Navigator services, 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lincoln Navigator cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Lincoln Navigator radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2004 Lincoln Navigator maintenance.

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

Questions About 2004 Lincoln Navigator Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2004 Lincoln Navigator. Get answers to common Lincoln Navigator maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Lincoln Navigator 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 Navigator to high mileage oil? If your Lincoln Navigator 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Lincoln? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Lincoln Navigator 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.
