1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Radiator Repair & Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban radiator serviced. Nonetheless, 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. 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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1998 Chevrolet C1500 Suburban is essential for long-term engine health. 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 notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
