Radiator Service & Repair for 1988 Jeep Wagoneer

Is It Time for Service on My 1988 Jeep Wagoneer Cooling System?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Jeep Wagoneer radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Jeep 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 notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Jeep Wagoneer

What does radiator repair include? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Jeep Wagoneer 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. Of all the parts in your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer engine, the water pump is one 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 you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. When it comes to radiator service and repair, we’ll take excellent care of your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We stand behind our work with our Triple Promise: Fixed Right, Priced Right, Right on Time.

Jeep Wagoneer Radiator Q&A

Take care of your 1988 Jeep Wagoneer radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Jeep 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 Jeep dashboard mean? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.
  •  Is an antifreeze leak dangerous? Don’t ignore puddles on your driveway or garage floor. If you see a green, bright orange, or pink fluid puddling under your car (it might be sticky, too), it could be antifreeze that’s leaking out of the engine. Antifreeze has a sweet, attractive smell to cats and dogs (and it’s highly toxic to them), so look out for your pets! Repair any leaks as soon as possible, then carefully wash away any remaining fluid that’s left behind on the driveway or garage floor.
  • Do Jeep Wagoneer radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Jeep Wagoneer radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
