Radiator Service & Repair for 1989 Chevrolet Blazer

Is It Time for Service on My 1989 Chevrolet Blazer Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Chevrolet Blazer radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer 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 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 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.

What to Expect from Chevrolet Blazer Radiator Repair

What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Chevrolet Blazer cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. The water pump is one part on your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer engine that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 1989 Chevrolet Blazer is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Common Chevrolet Blazer Radiator Questions

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Chevrolet? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • When should my Chevrolet Blazer radiator be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too!
