2018 BMW 230i xDrive Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2018 BMW 230i xDrive Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your BMW 230i xDrive 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive 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 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 notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
