If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your BMW 328i xDrive radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction.

To keep your radiator functioning, BMW recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad.
