Radiator Service & Repair for 1983 Lincoln Mark VI

When Does My 1983 Lincoln Mark VI Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Lincoln Mark VI radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1983 Lincoln Mark VI is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Lincoln recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Common Lincoln Mark VI Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1983 Lincoln Mark VI 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.

  • What does the coolant light on my Lincoln dashboard mean? 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.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? 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!
  • Do Lincoln Mark VI radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Lincoln Mark VI radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
