Lincoln Repair and Service

Essential Maintenance Guidelines to Extend Your Lincoln’s Performance


Lincoln, a luxury division of Ford Motor Company, is synonymous with comfort, luxury, and dependability. Owning a Lincoln is an investment in quality, but even these high-end vehicles require regular maintenance to remain in top shape. Here’s your go-to guide for keeping your Lincoln running smoothly for years to come.

Engine and Ignition Essentials

  • Spark Plugs: Although Lincolns are designed for durability, their spark plugs should still be inspected every 30,000 miles to ensure optimal ignition and combustion.
  • Coil Packs: Modern Lincoln vehicles often feature individual coil packs instead of a traditional distributor. Check these every 40,000 miles for wear or damage.

Vital Filters for a Healthy Lincoln

  • Oil Filter: With more advanced and refined engines, Lincoln recommends changing the oil filter every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, depending on your specific model and driving conditions.
  • Air Filter: Keep your Lincoln breathing freely by replacing the air filter approximately every 15,000 miles, or more often if driving in dusty conditions.
  • Cabin Air Filter: To maintain a clean and healthy interior environment, change the cabin air filter every 20,000 miles.

Additional Key Components

  • Transmission Fluid: For an optimally performing transmission, consider changing the fluid every 60,000 to 100,000 miles, based on your driving habits and model specifics.
  • Drive Belts: Check the condition of your Lincoln’s drive belts every 25,000 miles and replace as needed.
  • Coolant: To prevent overheating, it’s advised to flush and replace the coolant roughly every 50,000 miles.

Expert Maintenance Tips for Your Lincoln

  1. Certified Technicians: Always take your Lincoln to a certified technician who specializes in luxury vehicles for the most precise care.
  2. Quality Parts: Stick to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts to ensure compatibility and long-lasting performance.
  3. Regular Inspection: Consistent checks and early detection of issues can prevent costly repairs down the line.
  4. Consult the Owner’s Manual: Each Lincoln model has its own set of maintenance requirements. Always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the most accurate information.

Great family owned business, run a cool father and son duo. I’ve been taking my cars here for over a decade.

I’ve come across 2 types of mechanics over the years: 1) fixes what needs fixing, checks everthing else out, tells the customer what to keep an eye on/expect in the future. 2) fixes what needs fixing and EVERYTHING else that it touches.

PB Foreign and Domestic is type 1) – straightforward, steady, and honest – which is why I keep coming back and I suspect it’s why the same guys have been working there for forever too.

For regular oil changes and maintanance, George is awesome and everyone he employs, this place is great no complaints! Always will look at something if you have a concern like I did.

I truly feel like I’m getting the service that’s required and not being upsold on things I don’t need. The price is always better than anywhere else I’ve looked and repairs done timely. They always call if the estimate given to me ends up being different, sometimes it’s lower and if it’s higher they clearly explain why and if it’s absolutely necessary or a recommendation. I trust them.

If you want a local independent family owned car mechanic that is honest, trustworthy, reasonably priced, and not trying to nickel & dime you these are your guys! Aaron is especially a pleasure to deal with. He went above and beyond at my last oil change to help me on a few things that would have taken tons of time to figure out on my own, you can tell he enjoys helping people (when they aren’t too busy) and is just a personable good natured guy which is so great to have in a car mechanic. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

We really love PB Foreign and Domestic! They have served us well for years on 3 vehicles and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend over dealership or other local facilities. They don’t try to upsell you on things you do not need. Super friendly and can usually get you in within a day or two. It is best to call ahead and make an appointment.

Porsche Cayman – my car was overheating so I had my car towed to PB Foreign and Domestic Car Repair. The team was able to repair my car ( I needed a new radiator and water pump) and they gave me very fair pricing. I will definitely come back for my preventitive maintenance.
