How often should your 2018 Lincoln MKZ radiator be serviced?

When to Service Your 2018 Lincoln MKZ Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Lincoln MKZ radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. 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 2018 Lincoln MKZ is essential for long-term engine health. 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. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
