Radiator Service & Repair for 1988 Audi 90 Quattro

Is It Time for Service on My 1988 Audi 90 Quattro Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Audi 90 Quattro radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1988 Audi 90 Quattro is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. To keep your radiator functioning, Audi 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 could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Audi 90 Quattro cooling system.

Audi 90 Quattro Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 1988 Audi 90 Quattro 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 the coolant light on my Audi dashboard mean? 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? 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!
  • Do Audi 90 Quattro radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Audi 90 Quattro radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
