2015 BMW 228i Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2015 BMW 228i 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 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. 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 2015 BMW 228i is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, BMW recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific 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 leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. The water pump is one part on your 2015 BMW 228i engine 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.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 2015 BMW 228i at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Questions About BMW 228i Radiators

Take care of your 2015 BMW 228i radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about BMW radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does the coolant light on my BMW dashboard mean? 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? 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.
  • When should my BMW 228i radiator 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 BMW 228i in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
