1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban Radiator Service

When Does My 1983 Chevrolet C20 Suburban Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Chevrolet C20 Suburban radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1983 Chevrolet C20 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Chevrolet? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating.

  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? 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 C20 Suburban radiator be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too!
