When to Service Your 2012 Lexus ES350 Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Lexus ES350 radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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 2012 Lexus ES350 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. Lexus recommends that you replace coolant (also called antifreeze) at certain intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown 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.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, we’re here to give your 2012 Lexus ES350 the top-notch service it needs.

Common Lexus ES350 Radiator Questions

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2012 Lexus ES350 radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Lexus? 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.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Can Lexus ES350 radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Lexus ES350 radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
