When to Service Your 1999 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 vital to know what to look for. 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 1999 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. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What to Expect from Buick Century Radiator Repair

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Buick Century cooling system. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Of all the parts in your 1999 Buick Century engine, the water pump is one that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’re here to give your 1999 Buick Century the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Questions About Buick Century Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1999 Buick Century radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Buick dashboard on? 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? 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 Buick Century radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Buick Century radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
