When do 2012 Land Rover Range Rover radiators need service or repair?

Is It Time for Service on My 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Cooling System?

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Land Rover Range Rover radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 2012 Land Rover Range Rover is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Land Rover recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. 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. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Radiator Repair Service for Your Land Rover Range Rover

What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Land Rover Range Rover cooling system. 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.

Radiator problems often go hand in hand with water pump problems. Some services for your 2012 Land Rover Range Rover engine can wait, but the water pump is one part that needs to be addressed ASAP once an issue is identified. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help you stay ahead of any potential engine problems. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that your 2012 Land Rover Range Rover is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Questions About Land Rover Range Rover Radiators

Wondering how to make your 2012 Land Rover Range Rover radiator last as long as possible? Read on for answers to common questions, and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care when your engine shows any signs of a faulty radiator.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Land Rover dashboard on? 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? 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.
  • When should my Land Rover Range Rover radiator be cleaned? Cleaning your car shouldn’t be limited to the parts you can see. Regular cleaning is good for your radiator, too! When you take your Land Rover Range Rover in for routine maintenance or service, it could be a good idea to opt for a radiator cleaning, too.
