When Does My 2016 Lincoln MKX Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your Lincoln MKX radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2016 Lincoln MKX is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Lincoln recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 2016 Lincoln MKX is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
