Radiator Service & Repair for 2006 Acura TL

When Does My 2006 Acura TL Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Acura TL 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. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2006 Acura TL 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2006 Acura TL at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Acura TL Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 2006 Acura TL radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • 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.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • When should my Acura TL radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Acura TL radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
