Radiator Service & Repair for 1989 Chevrolet Astro

When to Service Your 1989 Chevrolet Astro Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Chevrolet Astro radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1989 Chevrolet Astro is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Chevrolet recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Common Chevrolet Astro Radiator Questions

Take care of your 1989 Chevrolet Astro radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Chevrolet 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 Chevrolet 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.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? 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.
  • Do Chevrolet Astro radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Chevrolet Astro radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
