2008 BMW 335i Radiator Repair & Service

When Does My 2008 BMW 335i Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your BMW 335i radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. 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 2008 BMW 335i is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. 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 see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too.

Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Can BMW 335i radiators be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your BMW 335i in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
