Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Chevrolet Astro radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2002 Chevrolet Astro is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Chevrolet recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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 happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Chevrolet Astro cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.
Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Some services for your 2002 Chevrolet Astro engine can wait, but the water pump is one part 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 trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to ensure everything is operating as it should.
