How often should I service my 2006 Mercury Monterey?
You want your Mercury Monterey to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Monterey has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Monterey maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2006 Mercury Monterey!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mercury, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Monterey perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2006 Mercury Monterey problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2006 Mercury Monterey for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Monterey’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 2006 Mercury Monterey 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mercury Monterey battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Monterey) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mercury Monterey won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2006 Mercury Monterey running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2006 Monterey. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2006 Mercury Monterey? We can help with that, too!

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

If you skip recommended Mercury Monterey services, 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.
