2016 Acura TLX Radiator Repair & Service

When to Service Your 2016 Acura TLX Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Acura TLX radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2016 Acura TLX 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 also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. 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 TLX

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Acura TLX 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 2016 Acura TLX engine that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. 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 ensure everything is operating as it should. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 2016 Acura TLX is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Acura TLX Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 2016 Acura TLX 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.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Acura? 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? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Do Acura TLX radiators need to be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your Acura TLX in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
