Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Honda Civic 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 1985 Honda Civic is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. Honda 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. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. 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? 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 Honda Civic. We’ll do a machine-powered coolant exchange on the system, and then we’ll top off or replace the fluids that were removed (like chemicals, lubricants, and sealants). Lastly, we’ll perform a pressure check to look for leaks.
Issues with your radiator often coincide with a malfunctioning water pump. Some services for your 1985 Honda Civic 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. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature. Our technicians can take a look at your radiator’s components to help make sure everything is in working order. From the radiator cap to the heater core, we’ll take excellent care of your 1985 Honda Civic at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Every job we do is backed by our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.
