1989 Lincoln Mark VII Radiator Repair & Service

When to Service Your 1989 Lincoln Mark VII Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Lincoln Mark VII radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but 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. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1989 Lincoln Mark VII 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 you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
