1983 Chrysler Imperial Radiator Service

Is It Time for Service on My 1983 Chrysler Imperial Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Chrysler Imperial radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1983 Chrysler Imperial is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Chrysler recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Chrysler Imperial cooling system.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 1983 Chrysler Imperial engine can wait, but the water pump is one part 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. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 1983 Chrysler Imperial is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
