Is It Time for Service on My 1996 Lincoln Town Car Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Lincoln Town Car radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1996 Lincoln Town Car is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Lincoln recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 1996 Lincoln Town Car engine, the water pump is one that you can't put off repairing or replacing.

If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your 1996 Lincoln Town Car at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About Lincoln Town Car Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1996 Lincoln Town Car 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? 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Do Lincoln Town Car radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Lincoln Town Car radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
