2013 Acura RDX Radiator Repair & Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2013 Acura RDX Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Acura RDX radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. 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 2013 Acura RDX is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Acura recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Acura dashboard on? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs.

  • When should my Acura RDX radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Acura RDX radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
