How often should your 2017 Lincoln MKZ radiator be serviced?

When Does My 2017 Lincoln MKZ Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Lincoln MKZ radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2017 Lincoln MKZ is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Lincoln recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What to Expect from Lincoln MKZ Radiator Repair

What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Lincoln MKZ cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. The water pump is one part on your 2017 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. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help make sure everything is in working order. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’re here to give your 2017 Lincoln MKZ the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Questions About Lincoln MKZ Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2017 Lincoln MKZ radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does the coolant light on my Lincoln dashboard mean? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? 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!
  • When should my Lincoln MKZ radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Lincoln MKZ radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
