Radiator Service & Repair for 1991 BMW 318is

Is It Time for Service on My 1991 BMW 318is Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your BMW 318is 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. 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 1991 BMW 318is 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 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.
