Check Out the Lincoln MKC in Narragansett

The Lincoln MKC is a popular crossover that is known for its sleek design. One of its top design features is the automatically folding power mirrors. Once the engine is turned off, the mirrors fold in, reducing the likelihood that someone will damage them.

The Lincoln MKC also sports unique approach detection features. When you approach the vehicle with your key fob in hand, its lighting turns on so that you can see the door handles and around the vehicle. This makes the Lincoln MKC easier to get into when it is dark outside.

The Importance Of Servicing Your Radiator

Radiators and engine cooling systems are often underappreciated. That is why we here at Flood Ford Lincoln in Narragansett feel the need to inform you about what they do and how often they should be serviced.

Start Planning on a Car Battery Replacement

A good battery can last a number of years, but even the best battery reaches its expiration date. Once a battery can no longer perform its necessary job, you must take it in for a replacement.

A faltering battery, however, might not always need to be replaced. A dirty terminal or damaged cable ends may both undermine the battery's performance. If an examination of the battery reveals problems like these, a necessary fix can be done. A minor fix eliminates the need to perform an unnecessary battery replacement.

A service center can also run a test on the battery…

Does Your Brake Pedal Need to Be Fixed?

Your brake pedal is an important part of the braking system. It forces hydraulic fluid through the brake lines in order to bring your car to a stop or slow it down. A problem with the brake pedal suggests a problem in the braking system.

One sign that you might notice is that the brake pedal feels soft. A light push on it might depress the pedal all the way to the floor. You might also notice that pushing on the brake pedal does not yield the slowing or stopping response that it usually does.

Reading the Yellow Tire Light

The tire pressure monitor system is a built-in check for tire pressure. It can report under-inflated and over-inflated tires. When the light comes on and stays, then you should check the tire pressure on each wheel. When the light comes on while driving, then it may be due to tires heating while driving or losing inflation. You should stop and check pressure as soon as possible.

Your Alternator Keeps Your Electrical System Charged Up

Your vehicle has multiple systems in it that require a steady feed of electricity in order to function. Obviously, your battery is at the center of your electrical system, but there is one other component that is critical to the life of your battery. That is your alternator.

Your alternator is essentially a small generator that charges your vehicle's battery as you drive. It also sends much-needed electricity to other systems in your vehicle, such as your lights and radio.

As your engine rotates while it is running, it powers a long serpentine belt that is connected to many…

Finance Online Like Never Before

Most people get vehicles by financing them or paying for them over long periods of time. The contract is between yourself, a dealership of vehicles, and a bank or other kind of financial institution. You pay the bank money, they keep a small amount in financing fees, and the rest is submitted to the dealership.

While the process is relatively simple, applying to even finance a car in the first place is the most difficult aspect of the process. You’ll have to dress formally, then visit the dealership in person, hoping that you make a good impression. At our…
