Keeping your cool is easier when your engine is cool. Schedule your 1987 GMC R1500 radiator repair or service today.
It can be tough to know when to have your GMC R1500 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 1987 GMC R1500 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, GMC recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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.
What happens during a radiator repair service? 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 GMC R1500. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check 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 1987 GMC R1500 engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. This pump ensures that coolant is always flowing through the radiator, hoses, and engine. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. From the heater core to the radiator cap, your 1987 GMC R1500 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.
