If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Chevrolet Caprice radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. 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 1988 Chevrolet Caprice is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Chevrolet recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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’s included in a radiator repair service? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Chevrolet Caprice. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.
Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Some services for your 1988 Chevrolet Caprice engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’re here to give your 1988 Chevrolet Caprice the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.
