When Does My 1998 Honda Prelude Radiator Need Service?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Honda Prelude radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1998 Honda Prelude is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Honda recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator 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.

Questions About Honda Prelude Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1998 Honda Prelude radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Honda dashboard on? Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? 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.
  • Do Honda Prelude radiators need to be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Honda Prelude radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
