When to Service Your 2010 Lincoln MKZ Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Lincoln MKZ radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2010 Lincoln MKZ is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Lincoln MKZ Coolant Fluid Exchange

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Lincoln MKZ cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. The water pump is one part on your 2010 Lincoln MKZ engine that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’ll take excellent care of your 2010 Lincoln MKZ at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Lincoln MKZ Radiator Questions

Take care of your 2010 Lincoln MKZ 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? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • Do Lincoln MKZ radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Lincoln MKZ radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
