Radiator Service & Repair for 2015 Audi A3 Quattro

When to Service Your 2015 Audi A3 Quattro Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Audi A3 Quattro radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2015 Audi A3 Quattro is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Audi recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Audi A3 Quattro Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2015 Audi A3 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 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.
  •  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!
  • When should my Audi A3 Quattro radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Audi A3 Quattro radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
