Radiator Service & Repair for 2011 BMW 335i xDrive

Is It Time for Service on My 2011 BMW 335i xDrive Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your BMW 335i xDrive radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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 2011 BMW 335i xDrive is essential for long-term engine health. 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 might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
