1997 Chevrolet Corvette Radiator Repair & Service

When Does My 1997 Chevrolet Corvette Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your Chevrolet Corvette radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but 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. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1997 Chevrolet Corvette is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Chevrolet recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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.
