1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue Radiator Service

When to Service Your 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Chrysler Fifth Avenue radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. 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 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Chrysler recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Questions About Chrysler Fifth Avenue Radiators

Wondering how to make your 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue 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.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Chrysler? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • Do Chrysler Fifth Avenue radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Chrysler Fifth Avenue radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
