What are Acura's recommendations for 1999 SLX radiator service and repair?

When Does My 1999 Acura SLX Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Acura SLX radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1999 Acura SLX is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Acura recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced 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.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Acura SLX

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Acura SLX cooling system.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 1999 Acura SLX engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems.
