Radiator Service & Repair for 1997 Audi A4 Quattro

When to Service Your 1997 Audi A4 Quattro Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Audi A4 Quattro radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1997 Audi A4 Quattro 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 could be on the verge of a radiator-induced 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.
