It can be tough to know when to have your Honda Ridgeline radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but 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. 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.
Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2010 Honda Ridgeline is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Honda recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
What’s included in a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Honda Ridgeline 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. Some services for your 2010 Honda Ridgeline engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to ensure everything is operating as it should. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’ll take excellent care of your 2010 Honda Ridgeline at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.
