What to Know About 1997 Lincoln Town Car Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Lincoln Town Car and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Town Car has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Town Car, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1997 Lincoln Town Car maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Lincoln, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Town Car's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1997 Lincoln Town Car problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Lincoln Town Car

Bring your 1997 Lincoln Town Car to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Town Car’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1997 Lincoln Town Car 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Town Car may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1997 Lincoln Town Car running newer, longer. To learn how often Lincoln recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 Town Car, 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. 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 1997 Lincoln Town Car.

Maintaining your Lincoln Town Car steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Lincoln Town Car suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Lincoln Town Car's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Lincoln Town Car maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Lincoln Town Car cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Lincoln Town Car? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.
