When Does My 1996 Acura NSX Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Acura NSX radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1996 Acura NSX is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Acura recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
