Is It Time for Service on My 2017 Lincoln Continental Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Lincoln Continental radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2017 Lincoln Continental is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. To keep your radiator functioning, Lincoln recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 2017 Lincoln Continental is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Lincoln Continental Radiator Questions

Take care of your 2017 Lincoln Continental radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Lincoln radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Lincoln dashboard on? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Can Lincoln Continental radiators be cleaned? To keep your Lincoln Continental radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
