Is It Time for Service on My 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Chevrolet recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad.
