Radiator Service & Repair for 1987 Audi Coupe

Is It Time for Service on My 1987 Audi Coupe Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Audi Coupe radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1987 Audi Coupe is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Audi Coupe Coolant Fluid Exchange

What happens during a radiator repair service? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Audi Coupe. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. The water pump is one part on your 1987 Audi Coupe engine 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. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to ensure everything is operating as it should. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’re here to give your 1987 Audi Coupe the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Audi Coupe Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1987 Audi Coupe 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? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? 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 Coupe 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 Coupe in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
