Keeping your cool is easier when your engine is cool. Schedule your 2002 GMC Savana 1500 radiator repair or service today.
Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your GMC Savana 1500 radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 2002 GMC Savana 1500 is essential for long-term engine health. 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. Your radiator could be close to causing an 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’s included in a radiator repair service? If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your GMC Savana 1500’s cooling system. We then do a machine-powered radiator exchange, replenish flushed chemicals, sealants, and lubricants, and then pressure check for leaks.
Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. The water pump is one part on your 2002 GMC Savana 1500 engine 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 isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to ensure everything is operating as it should. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that your 2002 GMC Savana 1500 is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car.
