Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Acura CL radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2002 Acura CL is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Acura recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Acura CL cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.
Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. The water pump is one part on your 2002 Acura CL engine that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to ensure everything is operating as it should. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2002 Acura CL at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
