Is It Time for Service on My 1995 GMC K3500 Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your GMC K3500 radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. 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 1995 GMC K3500 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. To keep your radiator functioning, GMC recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled 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 notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Radiator Repair Service for Your GMC K3500

What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your GMC K3500 cooling system. 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 1995 GMC K3500 engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you can't put off repairing or replacing. 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 ensure everything is operating as it should. When it comes to radiator service and repair, your 1995 GMC K3500 is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.
