2015 Audi Q5 Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2015 Audi Q5 Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Audi Q5 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2015 Audi Q5 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 also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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.

Audi Q5 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 Q5. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 2015 Audi Q5 engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help make sure everything is in working order. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2015 Audi Q5 at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Common Audi Q5 Radiator Questions

Take care of your 2015 Audi Q5 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.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Audi dashboard on? 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.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • When should my Audi Q5 radiator be cleaned? To keep your Audi Q5 radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
