When to Service Your 1998 GMC C1500 Suburban Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your GMC C1500 Suburban radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1998 GMC C1500 Suburban is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, GMC recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown 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.
