2003 BMW 325i Radiator Repair & Service

When Does My 2003 BMW 325i Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your BMW 325i radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2003 BMW 325i is essential for long-term engine health. BMW recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
