2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your BMW 340i GT xDrive radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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 2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. 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 could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown 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.

Common BMW 340i GT xDrive Radiator Questions

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2018 BMW 340i GT xDrive 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.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • When should my BMW 340i GT xDrive radiator be cleaned? To keep your BMW 340i GT xDrive radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
