Is It Time for Service on My 1984 Dodge Charger Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Dodge Charger radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 1984 Dodge Charger is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Dodge recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Dodge Charger

What does radiator repair include? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Dodge Charger’s cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Some services for your 1984 Dodge Charger 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. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. 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, your 1984 Dodge Charger is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Questions About Dodge Charger Radiators

Wondering how to make your 1984 Dodge Charger 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 Dodge? 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? 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.
  • When should my Dodge Charger radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Dodge Charger radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
