If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your BMW 320i xDrive radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should?
