Is It Time for Service on My 1997 Buick Skylark Cooling System?

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

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1997 Buick Skylark is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Buick recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific 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 see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Buick Skylark Coolant Fluid Exchange

What’s included in a radiator repair service? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Buick Skylark. 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.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Of all the parts in your 1997 Buick Skylark engine, the water pump is one that you can't put off repairing or replacing. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’ll take excellent care of your 1997 Buick Skylark at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Buick Skylark Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1997 Buick Skylark 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.

  • 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. 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 Skylark radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Buick Skylark radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
