The instrument cluster located on your Lincoln's dashboard is equipped with warning lamps and indicators that allow you to easily monitor your vehicle’s condition and control settings. Upon starting your vehicle, you may see some of these indicators light up as a routine check to verify functionality. These lights may simply be indicating a vehicle control setting, e.g., Front Fog Lamps On. If certain indicators were to remain illuminated while your engine is running, however, they could be alerting you to a serious condition. To take the guesswork out of interpreting these signals, scroll down to our visual glossary, which displays the full array of warning lamp and indicator symbols, and defines their function.
Changing your engine oil and filter at appropriate intervals helps maintain your vehicle. Clean oil lubricates your engine, and is necessary to help protect your engine, and ensure its proper function. Without this periodic service, the resulting metal-on-metal contact could cause severe damage.
Your Lincoln’s keys can do much more than unlock your doors and start your engine. They’re also equipped with a variety of advanced safety and time-saving features. From the peace of mind offered by setting responsible driving limits to the convenience of remote keyless entry, this guide details how to make the most of your keys’ amenities.
Your vehicle’s power steering system helps make turning the steering wheel easy. And that helps make low-speed maneuvers like parallel parking easier.
Many newer vehicles are equipped with Electronic Power Assist Steering (EPAS) and do not use brake fluid. But some older vehicles require power steering fluid to help keep this system running smoothly. Owners of these types of vehicles should check the fluid level every month.
If your power steering reservoir is low on fluid, you’ll need to add more to help keep your power steering system healthy. Here’s how it’s done.
