What might radiator trouble look like? Your car's radiator may need attention if your vehicle keeps overheating, leaks coolant, or constantly alerts you to a low coolant level.
Many radiator problems are repairable. However, you probably don't want to tackle DIY radiator repair at home. The process involves special tools and expertise.
If you’re noticing problems with your car’s cooling system, such as the temperature gauge reading higher than usual or a coolant leak under your car, the issue may be with your cooling system and can likely be repaired. Since low coolant levels from leaks are a common cause of radiator trouble, the solution may be to simply stop the leak, whether it’s coming from the radiator hose, water pump, the radiator cap, or the radiator itself.
If there are significant signs of corrosion or cracking across the radiator, however, it will likely need to be replaced. Our expert automotive service professionals are happy to handle radiator replacement services for vehicles with damaged radiators.
If your vehicle is overheating and there is no leak to be found, there may be a larger issue, such as a fan not working or the thermostat is stuck closed. Visit a Firestone Complete Auto Care for a cooling system diagnostic.
Regular radiator fluid exchanges help prevent the buildup of particles and debris within the car's cooling system. If a car goes too long without a radiator fluid exchange, those particles and debris can block passages within the radiator and hinder its ability to keep the engine cool and running at normal operating temperatures. Check your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations for a radiator fluid exchange service, typically every 30,000 miles or approximately every five years.
