2014 Chevrolet Corvette Maintenance Schedule

What are Chevrolet's recommendations for 2014 Corvette radiator service and repair?

When to Service Your 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Chevrolet Corvette radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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 2014 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Chevrolet Corvette Coolant Fluid Exchange

What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Chevrolet Corvette cooling system. 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.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 2014 Chevrolet Corvette engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help make sure everything is in working order. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’re here to give your 2014 Chevrolet Corvette the top-notch service it needs. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Common Chevrolet Corvette Radiator Questions

Take care of your 2014 Chevrolet Corvette radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Chevrolet radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Chevrolet? Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Can Chevrolet Corvette radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Chevrolet Corvette radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
