When to Service Your 1987 Buick LeSabre Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Buick LeSabre radiator serviced, but 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1987 Buick LeSabre 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Buick LeSabre

What’s included in a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Buick LeSabre’s cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Of all the parts in your 1987 Buick LeSabre engine, the water pump is one that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’ll take excellent care of your 1987 Buick LeSabre at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Common Buick LeSabre Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1987 Buick LeSabre radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Buick radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

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