2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe Radiator Service

When to Service Your 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. BMW recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran 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.

  • Why is the coolant light on my BMW dashboard on? 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.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? 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 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
