2009 BMW 135i Radiator Service

When Does My 2009 BMW 135i Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your BMW 135i radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2009 BMW 135i is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, BMW 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. 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 2009 BMW 135i the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

BMW 135i Radiator Q&A

Wondering how to make your 2009 BMW 135i radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • Why is the coolant light on my BMW dashboard on? 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.
  • 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.
  • Do BMW 135i radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your BMW 135i radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
