When to Service Your 1990 GMC Jimmy Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your GMC Jimmy radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1990 GMC Jimmy is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. GMC recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain 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 leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

What to Expect from GMC Jimmy Radiator Repair

What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your GMC Jimmy 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 1990 GMC Jimmy engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. 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. Our trained technicians can inspect your car’s radiator hoses and pumps to help make sure everything is in working order. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’re here to give your 1990 GMC Jimmy the top-notch service it needs. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Questions About GMC Jimmy Radiators

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

  • Why is the coolant light on my GMC dashboard on? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • When should my GMC Jimmy radiator be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your GMC Jimmy in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
