When to Service Your 1996 Buick Park Avenue Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Buick Park Avenue radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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 1996 Buick Park Avenue 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 also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Questions About Buick Park Avenue Radiators

Take care of your 1996 Buick Park Avenue 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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 Park Avenue radiators be cleaned? To keep your Buick Park Avenue radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
