Keeping your cool is easier when your engine is cool. Schedule your 1988 Dodge D150 radiator repair or service today.
If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Dodge D150 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. 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 1988 Dodge D150 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Dodge recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific 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 a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 1988 Dodge D150 engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it.
