When Does My 1991 Lincoln Mark VII Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your Lincoln Mark VII radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1991 Lincoln Mark VII is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What’s included in a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Lincoln Mark VII’s cooling system.

This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 1991 Lincoln Mark VII at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Lincoln Mark VII Radiator Questions

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1991 Lincoln Mark VII radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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 Mark VII radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Lincoln Mark VII radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
