Is It Time for Service on My 1990 Buick Century Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Buick Century radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1990 Buick Century is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Buick recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • When should my Buick Century radiator 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 Buick Century in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
