Is It Time for Service on My 1989 GMC R1500 Suburban Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your GMC R1500 Suburban radiator serviced, but it’s vital to know what to look for. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1989 GMC R1500 Suburban is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
