Radiator Service & Repair for 1997 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban

Is It Time for Service on My 1997 Chevrolet C2500 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 C2500 Suburban radiator serviced. Nonetheless, you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1997 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Chevrolet recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
