Is It Time for Service on My 1990 Dodge Grand Caravan Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Dodge Grand Caravan 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. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1990 Dodge Grand Caravan is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Dodge 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Dodge Grand Caravan

What happens during a radiator repair service? When you come to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we’ll begin your radiator repair with an in-depth inspection of the cooling system in your Dodge Grand Caravan. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.

If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Some services for your 1990 Dodge Grand Caravan 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. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to ensure everything is operating as it should. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’re here to give your 1990 Dodge Grand Caravan the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Dodge Grand Caravan Radiator Q&A

Take care of your 1990 Dodge Grand Caravan radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Dodge radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • 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.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Can Dodge Grand Caravan radiators be cleaned? To keep your Dodge Grand Caravan radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
