Lincoln Nautilus 2018-2023 Owners Manual / Driving Hints / Reduced Engine Performance. Cold Weather Precautions

Reduced Engine Performance

WARNING: If you continue to drive your vehicle when the engine is overheating, the engine could stop without warning. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle.

If the engine coolant temperature gauge needle moves to the upper limit position, the engine is overheating. See What Is the Engine Coolant Temperature Gauge.

You must only drive your vehicle for a short distance if the engine overheats. The distance you can travel depends on ambient temperature, vehicle load and terrain. The engine continues to operate with limited power for a short period of time.

If the engine temperature continues to rise, the fuel supply to the engine reduces. The air conditioning switches off and the engine cooling fan operates continually.

  1. Gradually reduce your speed and stop your vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so.
  2. Immediately switch the engine off to prevent severe engine damage.
  3. Wait for the engine to cool down.
  4. Check the coolant level. See Checking the Coolant.
  5. Have your vehicle checked as soon as possible.

Cold Weather Precautions

The functional operation of some components and systems can be affected at temperatures below approximately -13°F (-25°C).

    Traction Control

    How Does Traction Control Work

    If your vehicle begins to slide, the system applies the brakes to individual wheels and, when needed, reduces power at the same time. If the wheels spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces, the system reduces power in order to increase traction.

    Switching Traction Control On and Off

    WARNING: The stability and traction control light illuminates steadily if the system detects a failure. Make sure you did not manually disable the traction control system using the information display controls or the switch. If the stability control and traction control light is still illuminating steadily, have the system serviced by an authorized dealer immediately. Operating your vehicle with the traction co
