1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 radiator serviced, 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Alfa Romeo 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

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. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems.
