Radiator Service & Repair for 2017 BMW 340i xDrive

When to Service Your 2017 BMW 340i xDrive Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your BMW 340i xDrive 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2017 BMW 340i xDrive 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 notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your BMW 340i xDrive cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.
