Radiator Service & Repair for 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C

Is It Time for Service on My 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Alfa Romeo 4C radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Alfa Romeo recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Alfa Romeo 4C

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Alfa Romeo 4C cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help make sure everything is in working order. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’re here to give your 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Alfa Romeo 4C Radiator Questions

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Alfa Romeo dashboard on? Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  • 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 Alfa Romeo 4C radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Alfa Romeo 4C radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
