Radiator Service & Repair for 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider

Is It Time for Service on My 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Alfa Romeo Spider radiator serviced. Nonetheless, 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. 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 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider 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 a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Alfa Romeo? Your engine might be about to overheat.
