Radiator Service & Repair for 1999 Chrysler Cirrus

When to Service Your 1999 Chrysler Cirrus Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Chrysler Cirrus radiator serviced, 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. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1999 Chrysler Cirrus is essential for long-term engine health. Chrysler 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. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Of all the parts in your 1999 Chrysler Cirrus engine, the water pump is one that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. 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 radiator cap to the heater core, we’ll take excellent care of your 1999 Chrysler Cirrus at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Questions About Chrysler Cirrus Radiators

Wondering how to make your 1999 Chrysler Cirrus radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Chrysler dashboard on? 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.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? 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.
  • When should my Chrysler Cirrus radiator be cleaned? To keep your Chrysler Cirrus radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
