When Does My 2000 GMC Savana 1500 Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your GMC Savana 1500 radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. 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 2000 GMC Savana 1500 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 you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

GMC Savana 1500 Radiator Q&A

Take care of your 2000 GMC Savana 1500 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.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my GMC? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? 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 Savana 1500 radiator be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your GMC Savana 1500 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
