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.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2012 GMC Savana 1500 is essential for long-term engine health. 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.

When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Questions About GMC Savana 1500 Radiators

Take care of your 2012 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 the coolant light on my GMC dashboard mean? 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? It's better to get it fixed sooner than later. Antifreeze is toxic if consumed, but its smell can attract cats and dogs. Keep your whole family safe by repairing antifreeze leaks ASAP and thoroughly hosing down your parking spot to get rid of any lingering residue on the ground.
  • When should my GMC Savana 1500 radiator be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your GMC Savana 1500 in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
