My MKX is now telling me I need to refill the windshield washer fluid. I've looked in the manual and contacted Lincoln Concierge to find out what kind to buy and both recommended Motorcraft Premium Quality Windshield Washer Fluid CXC-37-(A, B, D, F). That is part number WSS-M14P19-A. Of course I can't find it anywhere but my dealership and I don't think it is sold online. I found a similar kind by Motorcraft on Amazon (ZC-32-B ) and ordered it but it won't be coming in until late next week. Does anyone have a recommendation for a specific kind to use or does it really matter? Thanks for any suggestions.

It's really not important. I use whatever is on sale, that's rated for -20° (f) and blue in color (just personal preference. I've had bad experiences with pink colored stuff, freezes as soon as it hits the windshield in winter).

$1.50 to $2 gallon is about what I pay.

Never use any wash that is not rated to -20° as it will freeze in the winter. Even if it's mixed with rated wash, the hose for the back window runs along the roof, is not heated by the engine and will freeze solid in winter.

If your uncertain and don't want to pay Ford prices, try NAPA or one of the other quality auto parts stores.

For the -45 version (not something needed in your neck of the wood) Costco is hard to beat @ $8 US for a case of 4.

In my locale, a ubiquitous brand made by Camco Mfg. Co. (N. Carolina) sold as Xtreme BLUE All Season Formula retails for far less than $2/gallon. It protects to -20F but I cut it 50-50 since local minimum temps seldom even reach freezing. It has worked well in numerous vehicles over several decades, including the MKX and other vehicles in my current stable.

 

When empty, the sturdy jugs make excellent containers for curbside recycling of my used motor oil.
