Radiator Service & Repair for 1986 Jeep J10

When Does My 1986 Jeep J10 Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your Jeep J10 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. 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 1986 Jeep J10 is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Jeep 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. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
