Radiator Service & Repair for 1990 Audi 90

When to Service Your 1990 Audi 90 Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Audi 90 radiator serviced, 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 1990 Audi 90 is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Audi 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Audi 90 Coolant Fluid Exchange

What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Audi 90 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. Of all the parts in your 1990 Audi 90 engine, the water pump is one 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 technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 1990 Audi 90 is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Audi 90 Radiator Q&A

Take care of your 1990 Audi 90 radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Audi radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does the coolant light on my Audi dashboard mean? 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • Can Audi 90 radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Audi 90 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
