Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Lincoln Town Car Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1988 Lincoln Town Car to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check.

Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Town Car's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1988 Lincoln Town Car? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Town Car may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Lincoln Town Car battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Town Car) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Lincoln Town Car 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 help your 1988 Lincoln Town Car's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1988 Town Car. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1988 Lincoln Town Car.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Lincoln Town Car can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.
