Radiator Service & Repair for 1991 Audi 80 Quattro

Is It Time for Service on My 1991 Audi 80 Quattro Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Audi 80 Quattro radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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 1991 Audi 80 Quattro is essential for long-term engine health. Audi 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. 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Audi 80 Quattro Coolant Fluid Exchange

What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Audi 80 Quattro cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible 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 1991 Audi 80 Quattro engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your 1991 Audi 80 Quattro at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Questions About Audi 80 Quattro Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1991 Audi 80 Quattro radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Audi? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  •  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!
  • Can Audi 80 Quattro radiators 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 Audi 80 Quattro in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
