Is It Time for Service on My 1996 Geo Tracker Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Geo Tracker radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1996 Geo Tracker is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Geo recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

What to Expect from Geo Tracker Radiator Repair

What does radiator repair include? 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 Geo Tracker. 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.

Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 1996 Geo Tracker 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. 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 make sure everything is in working order. From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’re here to give your 1996 Geo Tracker the top-notch service it needs. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Common Geo Tracker Radiator Questions

Wondering how to make your 1996 Geo Tracker 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 the coolant light on my Geo dashboard mean? 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? 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!
  • When should my Geo Tracker radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Geo Tracker radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
