Radiator Service & Repair for 2011 BMW 335is

When Does My 2011 BMW 335is Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your BMW 335is radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. 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? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2011 BMW 335is is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Questions About BMW 335is Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2011 BMW 335is radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does the coolant light on my BMW dashboard mean? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Do BMW 335is radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your BMW 335is radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
